Snorkel Tragedy: Children Found Alone On Oz Beach

Two children found alone on a remote Australian beach are in the care of the authorities after their mother was washed up dead and their father remains missing in a snorkelling trip that went tragically wrong.

Police said a search was continuing for 48-year-old Robert Shugg after the body of his 41-year-old partner, Kathreen Ricketson, was found near the idyllic West Australian holiday spot of Coral Bay on Wednesday.

Their children, a 13-year-old girl and a boy of 10, were on the beach as the tragedy unfolded.
