Two men have drowned in separate incidents in Victoria’s south-west, while a toddler is in a critical condition after a near-drowning at a Melbourne pool.
Police said a man drowned in waters at Williamstown Beach this afternoon after earlier a man in his 20s drowned at Seaholme near the Altona boat ramp.
Ambulance Victoria said they tried to revive the man after he and two other men got into trouble near the boat ramp at about 4:30pm, but he could not be saved. He died at the scene.
Passers-by on jet skis pulled the men to shore.
Meanwhile, the young girl is in a critical condition at the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Ambulance Victoria says a lifeguard at Collingwood pool was performing CPR on the girl when they were called just before 2pm.
A woman was also taken to hospital in a serious condition after being pulled from the water at Anglesea, south west of Melbourne.
