Man drowns at Mollymook Beach

A man has drowned at Mollymook Beach after entering the water in an attempt to assist his two teenage sons, 19 and 17.

The two boys got into trouble in the water sometime after 4pm. Their 50 year old father was trying to rescue them.

Other members of the same family called  the police for help and two surfers managed to pull the teenagers to safety.

Attempts to revive the father were fruitless. A report is being prepared for the coroner by police.
