Aqua English Holds Social Autopsy in Logan after a Logan resident in the Chin Community Drowns in Albert River

Aqua English Holds Social Autopsy in Logan after a Logan resident in the Chin Community Drowns in Albert River

Tue, 20 Dec 11

The Aqua English Project reacted as quickly as it could upon the request of the Chin community president and the Karini community President who were deeply distressed at the drowning death of a fellow community member in Logan on Friday 09th December 2011. ACCES Services Inc provided a meeting location in Room 7 of 6/2 Carmody Street, Logan Central and invitations were sent to all departments of The Queensland Government, all Aqua English Affiliates and Partners, as well as all Councillors for the Logan City Council and the Logan City Council and relevant departments. Aqua English was well represented, as were the Chin and Karini communities. The Queensland Government also made an important presence: Queensland Health, The Department of Communities, Local Government and Planning (Pool Safety), Multicultural Affairs Queensland (MAQ), and TAFE (TELLS Section). The Social Autopsy gave community members a chance to express what they were feeling and what they thought needed to be done. It also gave government departments the opportunity to listen and make suggestions as to what could be done. The Aqua English Project will hold a social autopsy after every drowning death in Queensland where possible, and the idea was sourced from the World Conference on Drowning Prevention, held in Vietnam in April this year. Many countries have adopted this approach when communities are adversely affected by drowning incidents.
