Three people found dead after being swept into flood waters

Three men have died after being swept into flood waters in separate incidents in NSW and the ACT.

NSW Police confirmed on Monday that Police divers had retrieved the bodies of two men in separate cars which were swept into flood waters at Bowral and in Leppington in Sydney’s south west yesterday.

The confirmation came just minutes after ACT police revealed that a 37-year-old man had died after his car was discovered submerged in floodwater at the Cotter Dam.


Police are urging the public to avoid flood prone roads and areas. Motorists are also strongly urged to obey all road safety warnings.

Reports will be prepared for the Coroner.
