Lo­cals tried to help save woman

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

PO­LICE in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the death of a 38year-old woman in a Mun­dub­bera park early last Thurs­day morn­ing re­vealed there were no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances.

A man who was with the woman sought help from the oc­cu­pants of a nearby house.

Helen Jenk­in­son and her son Corey were wo­ken by the man rat­tling their front door and ask­ing for help.

“He was trau­ma­tised, teary and plead­ing,” Mrs Jenk­in­son said.

“I don’t know what time it was – it was very dark.

“He asked if I could ring for an am­bu­lance be­cause his girl­friend wasn’t breath­ing.”

The am­bu­lance of­fi­cer kept Mrs Jenk­in­son on the phone and asked if her son could go across to the shel­ter in the Cen­te­nary Me­mo­rial Gar­dens and check the woman for signs of life.

He did but there were none.

“Our lo­cal para­medic ar­rived very quickly and I shone the torch for her while she tried to re­vive the woman,” Mrs Jenk­in­son said.

“She looked so peace­ful but couldn’t be re­vived.

“The most emo­tional part for us was the man.”

It was about 5am when the Jenk­in­sons re­turned home.

“That man needed our help,” Corey said.

“I’d do it again – it just shows how short life can be.”
