A 7-year-old boy has died after becoming lost in the snow at Victoria’s Mt Buller ski resort.
The boy, from Roxburgh Park in north Melbourne, was playing with his family when he went missing at around 5:30pm yesterday.
He was found unconcious by ski patrol at around 6:30pm and rushed to hospital, but died shortly after arriving.
It’s believed the boy was burried in snow after it fell on him from the roof of his hotel.
The Daily Mail is reported that ‘he was found unconscious covered in snow.’
Ambulance Victoria spokesman Paul Bentley said the boy was treated by paramedics and staff at Mt Buller Medical Centre.
‘He was treated for over an hour but couldn’t be revived,’ Mr Bentley said.
Our thoughts are with the boy’s family.
We’ll update the story as more details come to light.
