2 dead after being swept rocks while fishing in NSW

Two males have actually tragically passed away after being swept rocks into the sea while angling at Port Kembla. Emergency services looked out around 7pm, after three guys were brushed up right into the sea at Hill 60 near Fishermans Beach.

The triad were saved from the water by police and lifesavers, however, regardless of desperate attempts to conserve them, two of the guys can not be revived.


The 3rd male handled to get away unscathed, nonetheless 2 police officers experienced small injuries while trying to rescue the men.

According to NSW authorities, none of the guys were putting on life jackets.

Unfortunately, it’s the same rock platform where 3 guys passed away last month after they were also swept right into the sea while angling.

Detectives are appealing for any individual with vision of the case to speak to Lake Illawarra Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
