The girl’s dad and grandfather dived into the rooftop pool at the top of the Mark Holiday Apartments on a Sunday evening.

They were dragged from the water by onlookers who performed CPR on them but unfortunately went into a cardiac arrest and died.

The little girl was playing by the pool when she slipped and fell into the pool.

The girl’s mother – who couldn’t swim – jumped after the toddler, prompting the dad and granddad to come to the rescue.

The men entered the water fully clothed but got into trouble and drowned.

The child and mother are alive and well and have been taken to hospital in stable condition.

Mitchell Ware from Queensland Ambulance Service said: “It’s an extremely emotional scene.

“Obviously, anyone could understand that – not just to lose one family member but to lose two family members.”
