ROCK FISHERMAN RESCUED SOUTH OF SWANSEA

A rock fisherman remains in a critical condition, after he was pulled unconscious from the ocean at Lake Macquarie.

Emergency services, including the Hunter’s Westpac Rescue Helicopter raced to Spoon Rock, just south of Caves Beach, at around 8:30 on Friday morning, after reports three people had been washed into the ocean.

A paramedic onboard the helicopter was winched into the water to retrive the man, who was airlifted to Newcastle’s John Hunter Hospital.
