Body found floating face down in NSW lake

A MAN’S body has been found floating face down in Lake Macquarie, NSW.

Police say they were called to a section of the lake near Marmong Point about 11am after a man was found floating face down in the water and a small unoccupied boat was found nearby.

The man, said to be aged in his 60s or 70, was retrieved from the water but he was pronounced dead at the scene.


The body has not yet been formally identified.

Police are now investigating the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, which does not appear to be suspicious, and will prepare a report for the Coroner.
