A three-year-old boy has died in hospital, taking the total number of people killed by Queensland’s  flood disaster to four.

The young boy and a 34-year-old woman suffered head injuries when a tree fell on them at Gordon Park, in Brisbane’s north, on Monday morning.

Shortly before 10pm, Queensland police released a statement saying he had died in Royal Brisbane Hospital.

Initial information suggests that the woman and three-year-old boy were standing on Kedron Brook bikeway when they were struck by the tree about 8.30am.

They were both taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.

In other incidents, a motorcyclist’s body was pulled from the  Oxley Creek, south of Brisbane, on Monday.

He was seen being swept from his bike at Greenbank at Logan late on Sunday night.

An 81-year-old man’s body was also pulled from the water near Bundaberg and a 27-year-old man died when he tried to cross a flooded creek near Gympie.
