Woman dragged from Gordons Bay, surfer dies in Jervis Bay

A woman has died after being pulled from the water in Gordons Bay in the eastern suburbs.

The 47-year-old woman appeared to have suffered a medical flare-up while swimming near rocks on the beach south of Clovelly, in the east of the city.

Members of the public saw her swimming and at 1:40 p.m. pulled the woman out of the water, dubbed Triple-000, and began CPR.

Clovelly Beach lifeguards raced the water around the headland and administered CPR to the woman, but she could not be resuscitated after 30 minutes.

Earlier Monday, a surfer died at Caves Beach in Jervis Bay on the south coast.

There have been 1,436 rescue operations across the state since December 23.
