Flash flooding in the Queensland town of Killarney has killed a man after the water swept him and his car downstream.
Queensland police say preliminary investigations indicate the 69-year-old local was moving cattle to higher ground at a property on Condamine River Road when rapidly rising waters rushed in, consuming him and his car around 8.30pm.
“Emergency services were called to the scene and immediately commenced a search and rescue operation.”
Police say the man’s body was discovered inside his vehicle around 100 meters down the stream just after midnight last night.
Officers will prepare a report for the Coroner.
