walking along a street in Lidcombe

when the pair attacked, mauling his

face and arms.

As ambulance officers treat the

corner the aggressive bull mastiffs

in a nearby front yard. Just moments earlier, neighbours found

the middle-aged man screaming on

the footpath. It was very, very

vicious. The dogs were very, very

vicious and it was very, very

dangerous. The dogs basically, from

what I saw, just chewed off the

People in the north of the State

are being warned to prepare for

heavy rain and flooding. Tim Bailey,

just how bad is it expected to be?

This low-pressure system of the

south-east Queensland coast is

causing havoc. They have had 200 mm

of rain in the last 24 hours. Look

at these pictures. Flash flooding

and landslide warnings now in place

for south-east Queensland. Traffic

became chaotic. The big picture -

just how much rain has fallen

across that south-east corner? Some

of the dams in Queensland have not

seen a day of rain like this for 75

years. The upside is damn levels.

The highest and levels in five

years in Queensland, they are about

62 %. They had an amazing 3.4 %

increase in just 24 hours. The

danger is the low-pressure system

The devastated children of Annice

Smoel have spoken tearfully of their trauma.

Zhian, Zoe and Lilly Smoel are

struggling to cope with being

seperated from their mum. We love

our mum and we just want her home

now. I can't really that longer. We

love her so much and we want her

home so bad. Annice Smoel was

arrested in Thailand on May 2 over

the alleged theft of a bar mat,

which friends say they took. Her

four girls, including Daisy who's

away on camp, can't understand why.

I really miss my mum and I want her

to come back. The 36-year-old

remains on bail in Phuket with her

husband Darren and faces up to five

years jail. Not real well. I'm

tired and I'm exhausted and I'm

scared. Adding to the strain, 12-

year-old Zhian has had an operation

since the arrest. The fact I had to

have my appendix out and Mum wasn't

there and Dad couldn't come in all

the time because he had to take

care of my sisters. Kids, don't

worry - I'm going to get Mum home.

While the Federal Government says

the Department of Foreign Affairs

and Trade, as well as embassy

officials, are doing all they can

to help Annice Smoels, the family

is far from satisfied. All efforts

are being directed to try to bring

this to a quick and speedy

said it was imminent death. The

pressure on his brain had to be

released immediately, finding the

tools to do it was an issue. Advice

came over the phone from a

specialist in Melbourne. This is a

once-in-a-caree r thing that

happens to very few people. An

incision was made to expose

Nicholas's skull before a 10mm

drill bit was scrounged from

maintenance. To be quite honest, maintenance. To be quite honest,

that didn't really blow me away

terribly much because I knew that

he would need a craniotomy to get

the clot out of his skull. Released

from the Royal Children's Hospital,

Nicholas could be back on his bike

Brad, another Cronulla Sharks star

in all sorts of trouble tonight?

Yes, forward Reni Maitua has tested

positive for drugs.

Let's go to league reporter Glen

Lauder. Glen, is this career over for Maitua?

It is still early to say but the

signs do not look good. The shocks

only found at this afternoon. We

don't quite know what the substance

is at this stage. It is believed it

could be ecstasy or cocaine. It is

thought the Australian anti-doping

agency took a test about three agency took a test about three

weeks ago and the Sharks CEO is in

crisis talks this afternoon. It is

not good for the sharks. They have

not won since round one. They are

fighting to keep their major

sponsor. They were in crisis talks

with them a couple of days ago on

the back of the Matthew Johns

scandal. They are trying to prepare

for a Derby this weekend. It is not

the kind of disruption the quinella

sharks would like and of course he

problems. We will have all the breaking news.

Last Monday we broadcast a story about

about a potentially dangerous pool chemical, simazine, following

concerns that children may be

exposed to higher than acceptable

daily intakes. Our story showed

Chemicals. We did not intend to

Comanchero bikie boss Mick Hawi has

been followed by police moments

after walking free on bail over the

fatal brawl at Sydney Airport. The

28-year-old, who is charged with

affray, was hugged by family and friends, including his pregnant

wife, as he left Silverwater Remand

Centre. But he was soon driving off

with police in pursuit. Hawi was granted bail on Friday granted bail on Friday but remained
