Police are still searching for a 52-year-old, Kylie Bazzo, who drowned in the Mandurah boating accident. Let’s see what happened to Kylie Bazzo and Mandurah boat crash in detail.
Mandurah boat crash:
A boat with four people on board hit a red post marker in the Mandurah estuary around 10 pm.
In this incident, it is reported that four passengers on board crashed in Mandurah, south of Perth, one woman is dead and another is still missing.
At about 10 p.m., police were called to the Mandurah estuary. While a 52-year-old lady who was tossed overboard is being sought after, a 54-year-old woman was hurt on board and was unable to be saved.
“We’ve done land-based searches and water-based searches and at this stage, we’re probably in a space where we’re looking to recover the body,” Acting Superintendent Peter Morrissey from the Mandurah District Office said.
Nearly 24 hours after Western Australian Police were alerted to a location at Pinjarra Road and Soldiers Cove Terrace in Mandurah, south of Perth, Kylie Bazzo has been yet found.
Defender Rhett Bazzo mother’s friend Deborah Burdon was rescued from the river, but she passed away there. John Burdon, Deborah’s husband, who was thought to be operating the boat, was brought with critical wounds to the Royal Perth Hospital.
What happened to Kylie Bazzo?
Police are still looking for a 52-year-old second woman who was on the boat.
It was later confirmed that the missing women was Kylie Bazzo, the mother of West Coast Eagles’ young gun Rhet Bazzo.
Rhett Bazzo is the young West Coast Eagles player. Rhett Bazzo and his sister Kameron lost their father, WAFL legend Steve Bazzo, to cancer when they were children.
Bazzo told reporters after West Coast selected him with Pick 37 in the 2021 draught, “My family has given up a lot of things to make sure I can try and live out my childhood dream and I know my Dad would be looking down on me proud”.
Is she alive?
Police said shortly after 2 p.m. on Sunday that they had found the woman dead. However, they informed that was incorrect and that the search for her was still proceeding just before 3 o’clock.
Residents in the area described the scene as “chaotic” Friday night. One individual claimed that when she heard a disturbance and the police helicopters, she hurried outside.
At the site on Saturday night, police officer Vic Hussey announced that “unfortunately there is one person who is deceased.”
“At this time, we are searching for other parties that may have been in the water as a result of that collision.
“There’s a significant amount of police resources involved in the search at the moment.”
“We are aware of the fact that potentially the vessel has hit a navigation marker of something similar,” he said.
The fourth person on board, a 47-year-old man who was thought to be the boat’s driver, is being treated at Royal Perth Hospital for critical injuries.
Police are still looking into the matter and are inquiring how the incident happened.
