He was pulled out of the water onto rocks before lifeguards took him to the beach on a jet ski.

He was treated at the scene before being taken down the road to St Vincent’s Hospital in critical condition.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Giles Buchanan said the man was found unconscious and pulled from the water before his friends attempted CPR on the rocks.

“The medical team from the Toll Ambulance Helicopter landed at Bondi Beach where they treated the man alongside the NSW Ambulance’s ICU and paramedics,” Buchanan said.
