A woman and her 10-year-old daughter have been electrocuted on a rural property, possibly while fixing a cable to a semi-trailer.

Police said the pair was killed just after midday on New Year’s Eve on a private property at Tumoulin, southwest of Cairns in far north Queensland.

‘The initial advice is they were connecting a battery charger or a generator to a semi-trailer inside a shed,’ a police media spokesman said on Wednesday.
