Reports are coming in a teenager has drowned at Pine Island.
We’ll post more as it comes to hand.
I was wondering why Southcare was hanging around Tuggeranong for longer than usual yesterday. Now I know.
Police media have confirmed a 16 year old boy drowned. Very sad.
I can confirm there were lots of emergency services vehicles down there last night till at least 9.30pm. A helecopter went that way around 6pm so something happened. Very sad if someone has lost their life there.
Confirmed by ACT Policing, sadly: http://www.police.act.gov.au/media-centre/media-releases/act/2011/february/Teenager%20drowns%20at%20Pine%20Island.aspx
I knew this kid, saw him today in woden. sad sad thing to happen. he was 16. way to young R.I.P
He’s now confirmed – dead body was found, 16 & attended CIT. RIP.
It is incredibly sad. My thoughts are with his family and all of his young friends.
it was on WIN news as a breaking story, but that doesnt mean its confirmed….
Johnboy are you able to provide any other information. Is this a confirmed incident ?
That’s not good. Sorry to hear this.
Is the river still got a good flow going?
He was 17 and he went to Lake Tuggeranong College.
What should we call Canberra’s newest Light Rail Vehicle?
