Boy, 4, pulled from river

A TODDLER was rushed to hospital after reportedly being pulled from Maroochy River late Sunday afternoon.

Ambulance crews were called to Thomas Street in Maroochydore at 4.46pm to reports a little boy was involved in a post-immersion incident where he swallowed water.

The patient was believed to be a four-year-old boy who was treated at the scene.

A QAS spokeswoman said he was later transported to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
