A four-year-old child has been found dead in a Brisbane home.
Police established a crime scene at the home in the eastern suburb of Cannon Hill about 9am today.
They have cordoned off Bent Street and detectives are trying to determine the cause of death.
Local residents posted on social media that about 10 police cars and two ambulances were at the home, which is near Cannon Hill Anglican College.
The school sent an email to parents advising them that the street would remain closed for the rest of the day, and that alternative arrangements for school pick-up were being made.
"This morning an incident occurred in a residence in Bent Street close to CHAC Primary," the email read.
"Should you hear of this incident through the media, please be assured that there is no reason to be fearful of any threat to the school and your children are safe and are being kept totally unaware of the police presence outside the college.
"We are currently working with the police on a plan for pick up at the end of the day. Please continue to monitor your emails for updates."
A tradesman who was working nearby the home said he was alarmed by the commotion as dozens of police arrived.
"I was just doing some work and next minute, I heard cars coming and a bit of commotion," tradie Trent O'Brien said.
"Then all of a sudden I looked down there was one, two, three. I counted about ten cop cars fly in. A few ambos, maybe about four or five.
"There was a lot of police, more than 20."
He said his initial reaction was to think something had gone wrong at the school.
"I honestly thought there was a problem at the school which made me feel a bit sick knowing it was children, he said.
"Which in this case it turned out to be which is quite sad."
