Mum Discovers 3yo Daughter Hanging From Family Swing Set

A mother has discovered her little girl hanging by her neck on the family's swing set.

The three-year-old was taken to hospital in critical condition after she was found not breathing in the horrific accident.

A hospital spokesman this morning confirmed she is now in a stable condition.

According to The Daily Mercury, the girl was playing on the swing set as her mother tended animals on the family’s property.

However, when the mother next checked on her, the young girl was found hanging with the swing's rope around her neck.

The RACQ Rescue Helicopter was called to help transport the girl from the property, located 60 kilometres south of Mackay.

It is believed CPR was performed and the girl’s pulse returned before the flight landed to meet an ambulance.

The girl was taken to Mackay Base Hospital where she was later transported to Townsville Hospital.
