Man drowns in Christmas Day tragedy on NSW South Coast

A man has drowned while snorkelling on the New South Wales South Coast.

Paramedics were called to Lake Conjola Entrance Rd at Lake Conjola around 2.40pm on Tuesday.

The man went missing while snorkelling and was pulled from the water following a desperate search by family members and bystanders.


CPR was performed on the 46-year-old but he was unable to be revived and was declared deceased at the scene.
