The body of a nine-month-old baby is washed up on Surfers Par­adise beach. It is later re­vealed po­lice, frus­trated that Child Safety re­peat­edly ig­nored calls for help since June, drove the home­less fam­ily to a rel­a­tive across the border. They al­legedly found the par­ents were ine­bri­ated in a Broad­beach park. They had a his­tory of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. De­spite po­lice el­e­vat­ing the ur­gency of the case, DOCS only listed her as “con­cerned in­quiry of the child”. Af­ter the fam­ily hook-up fails, the baby is al­legedly dumped by her fa­ther in the Tweed River.
