“However, a five-year-old boy became trapped in the car before it submerged.”

The boy’s parents and two siblings were taken to Dubbo Base Hospital “in a state of shock”.

Another car with two men also became trapped at the same location but hours later they managed to swim across and call for help.

Eyewitness Fiona Aveyard was one of the first who arrived at the scene and told the outlet it was a “miracle they even got a signal to call for help”.


She said: “We arrived in the dark in water that was backed up a couple of hundred metres from the crossing. The water at the low-level crossing was up about a metre-and-a-half.

“They were downstream in the creek clinging to trees — a mother, a father and two young children.

“If that second vehicle hadn’t come across, there’s no way we’d have that family here this morning. They couldn’t have clung to those trees with children all night.

A police investigation into the incident is underway.
