Surf Life Saving resources are continuing to help Police search for a missing swimmer at Tathra, who was possibly attacked by a shark this morning before 9am.

 

Surf Lifesavers aboard Inflatable Rescue Boats (IRBs) from Tathra, Narooma, Pambula and Bermagui are on scene and assisting in the search. The Westpac Rescue Helicopter is also assisting.

It is believed the woman is a member of the Tathra Surf Life Saving Club and was swimming with a social group of members and non-members when she went missing.

Club members involved in the incident are receiving counselling and it is expected that this unfolding tragedy will impact significantly on the small coastal community.

The thoughts of all Surf Lifesavers in NSW are with the victim’s family and friends and also with the members still involved in the search effort.

Tathra beach is closed and although nearby beaches north and south are unpatrolled at this time of year, Surf Life Saving is advising swimmers to stay clear of the water until further notice.

It is believed Department of Primary Industries fisheries officers will conduct an investigation at Tathra once a shark attack can be confirmed.
