Millions of dead fish in river in Australian outback

Millions of dead fish were found washed up in a river in an Australian outback town. The dead fish include bony herring, Murray cod, perch and carp that died in the lower Darling-Baaka River near the far west town of Menindee in New South Wales.

The mass death was likely caused by hot weather and low oxygen levels as floods recede in the area.
