A two-year-old boy from Queensland has tragically drowned while playing hide and seek.

His mother, Tiffehnie, was preparing to take him and his younger brother to go to a Wiggles concert when he went missing during a game of hide and seek with his grandparents.

2. Former AFL star sentenced to five-and-a-half years’ jail for domestic violence.
Former AFL player Albert Proud has been sentenced to five-and-a-half years in jail for assaulting his ex-partner — but will be eligible for parole next year.
Proud, who played 29 games for the Brisbane Lions and recently played for Mt Gravatt Vultures, was charged with attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and willful damage over an attack on former partner Richelle Kadadi after the pair attended a wedding together last year.
The bride and groom were the ones to rescue Ms Kadadi as she staggered away from Proud’s home, heavily injured.
Ms Kadadi described in her victim impact statement how terrified she was the night of the assault.
“She suffered the additional pain of having her five-year-old son live with his father in Sydney while she recovered and was cared for by her elderly parents,” Brisbane District Judge Tony Moynihan told the ex-Brisbane Lions player.
“She just has to wait and see what the long-term consequences of your assault on her are.”
“You are a danger to members of the community when you are drunk.”
Proud will be eligible for parole in October 2017.

3. Sara Connor reunited with ex-husband in Bali.
The Australian woman arrested in Bali over the death of a policeman has had a reunion with her ex-husband.
Sara Connor’s former husband, Anthony 'Twig' Connor was allowed a 15-minute private visit with Ms Connor.
The father of their two sons briefly saw the 45-year-old at Denpasar Police Station.
Ms Connor, 45 and her British boyfriend David Taylor, 34, were arrested on August 19 over the death of officer Wayan Sudarsa.
Ms Connor's lawyer Robert Khuana said it was an emotional reunion.
“They hugged. (They were) crying together, both of them” he said.
“(They were) sad because they never thought this thing would happened. Especially now, they're thinking about their children."
Ms Connor's legal team have said they expected to take the Connor and Mr Taylor back to the crime scene at Kuta Beach today to walk officers through a re-enactment of what occurred almost two weeks ago. It is the first time they will visit the scene together.
