A British tourist died on Friday while attempting to rescue his two sons at a beach in southern New South Wales.
The ABC reports the man was in the surf with his sons at Burrill Beach, near Ulladulla, when they appeared to get caught in a rip.
The man went to their aid, but also got caught in a rip and had a cardiac arrest while in the water.
The Milton Ulladulla Times reports that beachgoers rescued the boys and then returned to help the father, but found him floating face-down.
The man was pulled from the water and paramedics performed CPR.
However, he was pronounced dead on arrival at the Milton-Ulladulla hospital.
It is the second death at the beach within a month, according to the Times.
