WOMAN DROWNS IN ROUGH SEAS ON THE MID NORTH COAST

A woman has drowned in rough seas on the NSW Mid-North Coast after beaches were closed due to dangerous surf.

The 47-year-old went to Park Beach in Coffs Harbour for a swim.

She entered the mouth of Coffs Creek just before 1 o’clock and was swept out to sea.

Lifeguards found the woman unconscious and began CPR before police and paramedics arrived.

Sadly she couldn’t be revived.

It’s believed she was holidaying in the area with her family.

All beaches along the Coffs Coast were closed in response to hazardous surf and dangerous winds from ex-Tropical cyclone Seth.
