Kempsey Man Dies After Swimming at Mid North Coast Beach

A Kempsey man has died after swimming at Hat Head on the Mid North Coast on Sunday.

Emergency services were called to a boat ramp at Hat Head, east of Kempsey, after a 24 year old man collapsed while swimming shortly after 4pm.

It's understood the man’s girlfriend dragged him unconscious from the water, where members of the public began CPR until NSW Ambulance paramedics arrived; however, the man died at the scene.

Officers from the Mid North Coast Police District will prepare a report for the NSW Coroner.

The man's death comes just a day after a 22 year old man was swept away in a rip at Valla Beach.

His body has yet been recovered.
