A man has drowned after falling from a houseboat on the Gold Coast overnight.

Emergency crews were called to Coombabah around 10.30pm on Friday, following reports a man had fallen off the back of a boat.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said the 58-year-old man is believed to have been missing in the water for some time, before he was found and pulled to shore.


Despite desperate attempts by paramedics, sadly, he could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police have confirmed the death is not being treated as suspicious.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
