Snorkler dies at Pedro Point

A Moruya man died this morning whilst snorkeling at Pedro Point, south of Moruya main beach.

About 10.30am (Sunday 20 November 2016), a man aged in his 40s was snorkelling with two other people in waters off Congo, when he experienced difficulties and was assisted on board a boat. The boat started to make its way towards Moruya when the man required CPR. CPR commenced and NSW Ambulance Paramedics attended Preddys Wharf, Moruya, to meet the boat. The man was treated by paramedics; however, he died at the scene. Officers from Far South Coast Local Area Command are investigating the incident. Source Post Script: 22 Nov, 2016 The lovely message below was posted on Social media by Col's work friends at the Moruya Hospital It is with deep sadness that I inform you all of the tragic death of Colin Davis from the Asset Management Department in Moruya Hospital over the weekend. Col commenced work at Moruya Hospital in April 2010 shortly after moving from Sydney. He quickly became a well-liked teammate and made an immediate impact on the grounds, improving the gardens to their current beautiful state. In his first year he was given a staff recognition award. He leaves behind a much loved wife, Monique and sons, Jared and Zane. Col was very proud of his family and has been known to declare he is “the luckiest man in the world with the best missus and awesome sons”. Col will be remembered for his willingness to always lend a hand, his frequent and animated fishing tales, the fishing photos shown from the tiny screen of his mobile phone and his loud music blaring from the maintenance workshop. Perhaps his biggest legacy though is reminding us all that life is for living and live it he did! We will miss you Col.....
