A resident who was among the first on the scene said she held Dylan as if he was 'one of her own'.

'It was very sad, a horrible situation … I held him as if he was mine, it was a very sad night,' she said.

Dylan's brother Jamie visited the scene on Thursday, where he told Nine News that his loved one 'was the most loving and caring person'.

'Everyone loved him and for good reason. He had the sweetest soul,' Jamie said.

'I love you Dylan. Everyone misses you so much.'

'These are kids in the prime of their life looking forward to a future and just as a result of making a split second decision or lack of control they could lose their lives,' he said.
