Two children assessed following incident in stormwater drain

ACT Ambulance Service and Fire & Rescue have been on scene at a stormwater drain at Richardson adjacent to Clift Crescent under Ashley Drive following reports of a male in the stormwater drain.

ACT Fire & Rescue setup downstream recovery lines to rescue the male, however these were not needed as the patient had already been removed from the water.

ACT Ambulance Service intensive care paramedics have assessed two male children all of whom were uninjured.

ACT SES would like to remind the community to stay clear of stormwater drains and fast flowing water.
