FOUR DEAD IN AUSTRALIA FLOODS


BRISBANE, Australia -  Helicopters plucked dozens of stranded Australians to safety in dramatic rooftop rescues on Monday as severe floods swept the northeast, killing at least four people and inundating thousands of homes.
The body of one man carried off by rising waters was found in the Queensland state capital Brisbane and another further north at Gympie, following the earlier discovery of an elderly man who died near the city of Bundaberg.
A pregnant woman and her three-year-old son were hospitalised after a large tree fell on them as they were walking on Monday morning in Brisbane. They were reported to have head injuries, with the child in critical condition.
Queensland Premier Campbell Newman announced that an acute emergency was unfolding in Bundaberg, home to about 50,000 people some 360 kilometres north of Brisbane, with people scrambling to get out as the river hit a record peak.
Hundreds were last night spending the night in evacuation centres across central and southern Queensland as floodwaters climbed towards record heights in some parts.
