Mystery Surrounding Woman Found Dead At Bondi Beach
Mystery is surrounding the body of a woman believed to be in her late 20s, early 30s, who was pulled from the water at Bondi Beach on Saturday evening.
She was found face-down in the surf at the Southern end of Bondi Beach and was unconscious when she was pulled from the water, according to a report on SMH.
Several witnesses pulled the woman from the surf and attempted to revive her on the beach before paramedics and police arrived.
Tragically, the woman could not be saved. A woman (described only as ‘Payan’) was walking along Bondi Beach with her daughter on Saturday night when she saw a person in the water close to the shore.
She said the person was "going forwards and backwards, backwards and forwards" in the waves.
"I ran up to it and said, 'Excuse me, excuse me.' There was no answer, so I started shouting to my daughter call the police," Payan said.
A NSW Police spokeswoman has spoken out this morning, stating that despite a public appeal over the weekend to try to identify the woman, police are still no closer to knowing who the woman was.
The spokeswoman also said that the circumstances of her death were also unknown, and they weren’t sure how the woman, who was fully clothed, came to be in the water.
Her death was not being treated as suspicious, but it was unclear whether she had been caught in a strong current at Bondi on Saturday and was pulled into the water.
According to a report on SMH, police described the woman as being of Asian appearance, about 25 to 30 years old with short black hair.
She was wearing a black short-sleeved top and black shorts, black socks and purple New Balance running shoes.
Police searched the beach on Saturday night to see if the woman had left any items behind, but could not find anything.
A water police vessel and police helicopter also swept the water on Saturday night.
Anyone with information about the identity of the woman has been urged to contact Eastern Suburbs Local Area Command detectives on (02) 9365 9699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
