Two young girls nearly drowned at a Gold Coast resort

Two little girls are lucky to be alive, after a horror near drowning incident in Main Beach yesterday.

It happened at a resort swimming pool on Hughes Avenue around 4.00pm.

The girls were found at the bottom of the pool by bystanders, and quickly pulled out.


It’s not clear how long the girls spent under the water.

Paramedics were called to the scene, where they were able to stabilise the girls’ conditions.

They’re both believed to be of primary school age, and were taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital.
