Family and friends have set up a fundraising page to help the four children of a mother who drowned at a popular Adelaide beach last week.
Kylie Ashcroft, 28, was pulled from the water at Aldinga Beach at around 7pm last Thursday after she had drifted away from the shore on an inflatable raft. It is understood she was trying to save a nine-year-old girl when the tragedy struck.
The mother-of-four could not be revived.
Now, her friend Monique Robson has set up a GoFundMe page to help ease the financial burden on Kylie's family and help provide for the four children she left behind.
"At just 28 years old, Kylie was taken from this Earth, leaving behind 4 beautiful children," Monique wrote.
"Kylie was an amazingly strong, independent, fun loving woman. She was kind, compassionate and generous; always the first to offer a helping hand to anyone in need, never asking for anything in return.
