Surfers Paradise Beach the day after another tourist is lost swimming in unfavourable conditions.

The lure of the ocean had claimed another life this week as a group of Chinese tourists when swimming off Surfers.
All week the warnings had been broadcast on the News of the dangerous conditions along South East Qld beaches, but it seemed too much of a temptation for a group of overseas tourists who ventured into the waters.
One 17yo lad disappeared in front of his friends at the main beach only to be found the day after this shot 5 K’s away on South Stradbroke Island.

    This is a brilliant image and sadly a stark reminder of the brutality of nature!
