Community members of the rural town of Pratten, in Queensland’s Southern Downs, are turning their annual Christmas party into a fundraiser for a young family coping with the death of two children in a car accident at the Wyaralong Dam.
- Four-year-old Mia and Leo, 13, died in the crash south of Brisbane
- Their mother Mel Martin and her partner Dylan Wadley are recovering in PA hospital
- The couple’s one-year-old son is in a critical condition in Queensland Children’s Hospital
Leo Larsen, 13, and four-year-old Mia died when their family car veered off the road and became submerged in the dam on Sunday.
Pratten Progress and Preservation Association president Diane Lawlor said the news was confronting for members of the small town.
