The Adelaide-based newspaper The Advertiser is reporting that two young children aged 11 have drowned at the Glenelg beach in Adelaide. The seaside tragedy took place yesterday evening at around 6PM.
AMA understands that these children are from an African (Burundi) background and were spending time at the beach with friends and family to cool off a very hot day in Adelaide. Three other children were involved in the incident, but they were successfully rescued by paramedics.
