Police will prepare a report for the Coroner after a man’s body was found floating in Lake Macquarie a few hours ago.
Around 11am (Friday 13 February 2015), police were called to a section of Lake Macquarie near Marmong Point, where a man was found floating face down in the water. A small boat was floating nearby.
The man was retrieved from the water but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are now investigating the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, which does not appear to be suspicious.
The man, believed to be aged in his sixties or seventies, has not yet been formally identified.
