1. Childhood friends whose car crashed into Melbourne wetlands desperately tried to kick their way out.
Sunshine and Hoppers Crossing duo Jason Gilham and Bradley Dobney, both aged 27, were found dead inside the Mercedes-Benz after it was pulled from the water.
They had tried to force their way out through the sunroof and back window.
News.com.au reported a police officer and paramedic jumped in to try and free the men but were unable to do so.
It is understood the vehicle veered off the Western Ring Road at Altona North about 8.45pm on Saturday before entering the wetlands below.
Speed may have been a possible a factor with police still to determine the cause.
The day after his death, Jason Gilham’s girlfriend Carla Rainone shared a photo of her partner on social media. The caption read: “Please come back to me, I love you”.
Friends and family have left flowers at the scene.
