The identity of a woman who died after becoming trapped in floodwaters in Queensland has been revealed. 

She was 31-year-old mother-of-three Casey Munchow, who tragically lost her life in the Queensland floods near Mackay last week. 

Police said Ms Munchow was still strapped into her seat when her body was found in a submerged car in floodwaters on May 11.

It was revealed Ms Munchow was travelling with two other people on Surprise Creek Road in Mount Ossa, north of Mackay.

Those two people – a 50-year-old Mount Charlton man and a 30-year-old Mount Pelion woman – were able to get out of the vehicle and raise the alarm, however Ms Munchow was unable to make it out in time. 

Mackay Acting Superintendent Mark Burgess told reporters Ms Munchow’s vehicle was visible from the roadway but was covered in water when emergency services crews arrived at the scene.

‘The vehicle had been swept away from the causeway and the amount of water flowing down there limited the amount of (rescue) activities,’ he said. 

Ms Munchow leaves behind husband Josh and three children, Dylan, 10, Tommy, 7 and Evie, 2.

Family friend Natasha Spreadborough has created a GoFundMe page in her honour.  

‘Casey was all the good you could ever want in a person,’ Ms Spreadborough posted. 

‘One of a kind with a heart of gold, was always there for her friends and completely family oriented, a crack up to have a laugh and drink with, would light up a room with her energy.’  

The tragic news came as a ‘massive shock’ to everyone close to her – and has left the town of Calen ‘absolutely rocked.’

‘Casey left us unexpectedly, and during this heartbreaking time, to ease the financial stress on her beautiful family, I’m asking that you donate to this page.’

Ms Munchow worked as wedding photographer and launched an online company with her husband last year. 

It provided the opportunity for local businesses to connect in helping prospective brides plan their special days.
