On Thursday, at North Wollongong beach in New South Wales police divers made a grim discovery of a missing Indian swimmer.

Around 2pm, the police divers pulled out the body of a 21-year-old man from Queanbeyan.

Inspector Mark Walker from Wollongong Local Area Command told Illawarra Mercury – “the alarm was raised by witnesses who noticed the swimmer struggling in the water before disappearing.”

Port Kembla Water police said that the man was first reported in danger around 7:20pm on Wednesday but the search was suspended      .

“It appears he’s got into difficulties in a gutter that’s formed there, and pretty quickly after he’s gone under water the witnesses haven’t seen him again, so they haven’t been in a position to even render assistance,” Walker told Illawarra Mercury.

Inspector Walker also said some of the belongings and ID of the man were found later on the sand.
