Four people have died in the Northern Territory Outback after their car broke down on a remote track late last week.
An air and land search discovered the body of the young boy 120 meters away from the family.
In what is one of the Territory’s worst Outback tragedies, the quartet left Willowra on Friday destined for the community of Jarra Jarra.
The “distraught” passer-by rushed to the Willowra health clinic to raise the alarm.
He said the tragic incident was a sad reminder to take precautions when travelling on remote Northern Territory roads.
