Fisherman Drowns Off Mahon Pool, Near Maroubra Beach


Recommended Posts

A FISHERMAN has been swept off rocks to his death near a Sydney beach, police say.

The man was fishing near Mahon Pool, 500m north of Maroubra Beach in the city's south-east, around 2.30pm (AEST) today when he was swept into the ocean, police said.

Passers-by raised the alarm after spotting the man face down in the water.

Local lifesavers on jet skis attempted to retrieve him but were unsuccessful due to rough conditions.

The man's body was eventually winched from the water by helicopter.

Police are now trying to identify him.

Anyone with information was urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.
