A man has saved his girlfriend's life after she was washed off rocks while fishing at the notorious Snapper Point near Catherine Hill Bay late this afternoon.
He threw a life ring to the 26 year old woman, keeping her afloat.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter winched her to safety.
It's unclear how long she'd been in the water.
She's in a stable condition suffering hypothermia and lacerations.
