    He's presumed dead. I suppose that was inevitable but I was hoping he'd maybe been washed onto rocks or something.

    I hope they find him. I can't bear to think of how his parents feel, looking out over that vast expanse, knowing he's out there. I don't know what the chances are of such a little one being washed back to shore. Just horrible.

    The little boy was seen being swept away but no-one went into the water after him. The adults with him were not competent swimmers.

    Coastguards got there fast, but there's no lifeguards stationed on the actual beach, so rescue efforts took precious minutes.

    The little one has been identified as Chayce Kofe. It looks like he was playing at the northern end of the beach which locals (but not visitors of course) know can be dangerous in bad weather. Conditions were not good that day, searchers say. This report says people did try to 'grab him', while it also says Chayce was only spotted once in the surf, by another child.

    Divers have been searching today, but it doesn't look like the poor little mite's been found.

    Visibility for divers is poor, there's a large swell affecting the coast and the surf's 'like cannons going off'.

    Exactly! Even if I wasn't a strong swimmer I would have jumped in to try and save my son and wouldn't have to think about it if I saw my child frailing about in the water.

    'The idyllic Central Coast bay was one of the most deceptively dangerous beaches in the state'

    The article also says that even two police officers on paddleboards struggled to get to little Chayce. None of the adults with Chayce were swimmers.

    Doesn't the beach have warning signs? I think it's a real shame if it doesn't. Visitors who don't know the sea really need warning, in my opinion.

    Why I think there should always be warnings, even if the dangers seem obvious. Look at this dad in England, with his toddler in his arms.

    ETA: Scroll through to the next photo to see what happens.

    Human remains found at a NSW beach are believed to belong to a five-year-old boy who was feared drowned when he was swept out to sea almost two weeks ago.

    Chayce Kofe was playing with relatives on the shoreline at Pearl Beach on the Central Coast on July 10 when a large wave carried him out into the ocean.

    Police were called to the beach about 3.30pm on Monday with reports a child's body had been spotted in the water by a man walking his dog.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.
