A woman has died after being pulled from the water at a NSW beach.
The woman, 73, had been swimming South Valla Beach, Valla, about 5pm on Saturday when she is believed to have suffered a medical episode.
Emergency services attended the scene, where paramedics unsuccessfully tried to revise the woman.
Police said they would prepare a report for the coroner.
It comes after one man died and two were hospitalised in a major rescue operation at Cronulla Beach last weekend.
“We are experiencing one of our biggest summers ever with huge rescue numbers, and our volunteers have put in a massive effort to try to keep people safe along the coast,” Joel Wiseman, Surf Life Saving NSW’s director of lifesaving told the ABC at the time.
