A man has died after drowning at Avalon beach earlier today.

The man, in his 60s, was discovered by fellow beach-goers and dragged onto some rocks.

They then performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

A witness has said that the man had been seen surfing up the southern end of the beach.

Paramedics from both a helicopter and four road teams were unable to save the man.

“The man is yet to be formally identified,” a police spokesperson said.

“Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command are making inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the man’s death.

“A report will be prepared for the Coroner.”
