On behalf of West Australians, my heartfelt sympathies and thoughts go to the family and loved ones of Peter Lynch and Endah Cakrawati.
I spoke with Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi and Deputy Premier Liza Harvey last night, and the decision to cancel the Australia Day fireworks following this tragedy was the right thing to do.
I would like to thank all West Australians for their understanding of that decision to cancel the Skyworks event.
Colin Barnett, Premier
I too offer my heartfelt sympathies and thoughts to the family and loved ones of Peter Lynch and Endah Cakrawati.
I was at the WA Police Maylands Incident Control Centre last night and saw the swift and professional response of our emergency services to deal with the significant incident.
West Australians should be proud and confident that in emergency incidents, the men and women in our emergency service immediately engage and work together to respond and keep the community safe.
Liza Harvey, Deputy Premier
