Two men pulled from the water at NSW beaches have died despite the efforts of doctors and paramedics to revive them.
A 32-year-old bodyboarder who entered the water at Inyadda Beach at Bendalong, near Nowra, about 10am (AEDT) on Monday was pulled ashore by local surfers, police said.
It’s suspected he suffered a medical emergency.
A NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said a doctor happened to be at the beach and administered CPR until paramedics arrived.
They spent about 20 minutes trying to revive the man but he died at the scene. He may have had a pre-existing medical condition, police said.
Meanwhile, a snorkeller found a man aged in his mid-twenties floating unconscious underwater at Little Delwood Beach near the Manly Wharf on Sydney’s northern beaches about 1pm on Monday.
He had gone into cardiac arrest.
Emergency crews arrived and performed CPR on him before taking him to Manly Hospital in a critical condition, a NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said.
A hospital spokeswoman said despite the efforts of staff the man was unable to be revived and was pronounced dead.
The incidents happened on the same day a woman's body was found after she went missing from her family boat anchored at Rose Bay.
