Lifesavers, Paramedics, and Police were involved in the unsuccessful resuscitation of a teenager who drowned while swimming at a Port Macquarie blowhole on the State’s Mid North Coast on Monday.

It is believed that the 15-year-old male was jumping into the blowhole at Nobbys Beach, Port Macquarie at around 10.30 AEST when he struck his head and lost consciousness.

Two friends who witnessed the incident grabbed a nearby angel ring and jumped into the water in a desperate effort to aid the young man.

They were able to drag him onto a rock platform where paramedics performed CPR. Unfortunately all efforts were unsuccessful.

Upon being informed of the situation by Police, SLSNSW State Operations Centre tasked lifesaving assets from Port Macquarie clubs and the Mid North Coast Duty Officer attended the scene.

The lifesavers assisted in the recovery operation, and participated in a critical incident debrief as per standard operating procedures. A report will be prepared for the coroner.
