Young boy hospitalised after near-drowning in pool, Main Beach

A young child is recovering this morning, after nearly drowning in a pool last night.

Emergency services were called to a private residence in Main Beach just after 6.00pm.

A young boy had fallen into the property’s pool, though was pulled out after just a short time.


He luckily sustained no major injuries, and was alert and awake inside the home when paramedics arrived.

He was taken to hospital as a precaution after taking on some water.

Queensland Ambulance were unable to confirm the boy’s age.
