Toddler rushed to hospital after near drowning
A TODDLER is in a serious but stable condition in hospital following a near drowning incident just before noon today.
Paramedics were called to a private address in Bowen at 11.47am after the girl was found submerged in water for an extended period of time.
The girl was taken to Bowen Hospital by ambulance.
A spokesperson for Queensland Ambulance Service said they were unsure how the incident occurred or whether it took place in an area such as a bathtub, sink or a swimming pool.
The spokesperson said an airlift had not been co-ordinated at this stage and the girl would continue to be treated at Bowen Hospital for the time being.
