A two-year-old boy from Queensland has tragically drowned while playing hide and seek.
Elliot Michael Tate went missing on his family property near Helidon on Friday.
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.
The two-year-old, one of two boys for mum Tiffehnie was found face down in a water tank and despite efforts to resuscitate him he couldn't be revived.
"Elliot was a 2 year old boy who loved life, being outdoors and fixing things. The sweetest boy we've ever met, he has a younger brother whom he loved very much. His Mummy Tiff and Daddy Michael gave him a beautiful life full of love and adventure," a post a Go Fund Me page reads.
"Elliot was supposed to be getting ready with his mum and brother so they could go and see the Wiggles Concert, however the outdoors loving little boy that he was decided to go out on an adventure of his own where he tragically lost his life."
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.
