Womans body retrieved from submerged vehicle

POLICE divers and a specialised swift-water rescue team have recovered the body of a 55-year-old woman missing in floodwaters since Tuesday.

The woman’s body was found inside the car from which she called for help on Tuesday morning, minutes before the vehicle was inundated by water.

Emergency service workers retrieved her body at about 1pm on Wednesday, after dangerous conditions prevented them from reaching the vehicle.

A Queensland police spokesperson confirmed the body retrieved from the submerged vehicle was that of the missing Sydney woman.

“The vehicle had been pushed off a causeway and into a flooded creek next to Golden Mile Road, approximately 15km from Dysart,” the spokesperson said.
