Border wars in Australia have reached a new low, with a Sydney family being asked to determine which of their four children will be allowed to cross the Queensland border to say goodbye to their dying father.
The Prime Minister has now been urged to interfere, with the young people desperate to see their father when they can still remember him.
Dad and truck driver Mark Keans, 39, has inoperable brain and lung cancer.
His four children, all under the age of 13, are trapped in Sydney, with Queensland Health officials telling the family that they can not cross the border.
Their grandfather, Bruce Langborne, says the children ‘want to see him desperately.’
