Another Drowning At Notorious Beach Where Three People Died This Week
A man has died after being pulled unconscious from the water at the same NSW beach where three members of the same family drowned just days ago.
Paramedics responded to reports of a man in difficulty off Moonee Beach, near Coffs Harbour, early on Friday afternoon.
Four ambulance crews and a helicopter were assigned to the rescue. NSW Police later advised the man, a 60-year-old Swiss national, had died.
"Emergency services were called to Moonee Beach, north of Coffs Harbour, about 12:25pm after reports a man was missing in the water," police said.
"A short time later witnesses pulled the unconscious man from the surf and commenced CPR until the arrival of NSW Ambulance paramedics, but he died at the scene."
It's the same beach where just days earlier, six members of the same family got into trouble.
Three teenagers were pulled from the water, but tragically a 45-year-old man and a 35-year-old man drowned.
After several days of searching, the body of a 27-year-old man was recovered from the ocean on Friday.
In a separate incident at Bondi Beach, a man believed to be in his 40s was found floating face down in the water on Wednesday.
It is understood he had been rock fishing without a life jacket when he was swept into the water, a spokesperson for NSW Police said.
More to come.
