TWO TEENAGERS have been killed in a boating tragedy at Lake Keepit on Tuesday evening.
Police were told a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old were being towed behind a boat when they collided with a tree about 5pm.
Police said members of the public commenced CPR and desperately tried to save the two teenagers as emergency services rushed to the Ski Gardens Road caravan park at Rushes Creek.
The 13-year-old and 14-year-old tragically could not be revived and died at the scene.
Oxley police launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the boat crash.
The driver of the boat at the time, a man believed to be aged in his 70s, was taken to hospital for mandatory testing.
Ambulance paramedics and Oxley police officers were tasked to the scene.
A report will be prepared for the information of the coroner.
