Byron businesses buckle down

The Greater Sydney lockdown has had a direct impact on local businesses who have seen a dramatic fall in customer numbers, particularly in Byron Bay.

Byron Shire Cr Sarah Ndiaye.

I want to acknowledge the people who acted quickly and saved the three-year-old girl who was pulled from Brunswick River at approximately 2:20pm on Saturday, September 23, showing no signs of life.

It was incorrectly reported on page 3 of last week’s Echo that family and ambulance performed the life saving CPR, however it was local community members that jumped in to assist and bring her back to life.

She was gone for a long time (at least eight minutes from what I can work out) and it’s miraculous what they were able to do.

So to all of the people who helped out however they could – thank you. It was a harrowing experience for all involved and you need to be acknowledged.

I hope it serves as a reminder to many of how valuable it is to have people in the community skilled in First Aid and CPR.
