Man's body found washed ashore near Murray Mouth

The body of a Port Noarlunga man was found washed ashore on the Younghusband Peninsula, just south of the Murray Mouth, on Sunday afternoon, December 5.

Police including the Water Operations Unit, along with local patrols, ambulance crews, and surf life savers attended the scene, having received a report from the public about 4pm.

A kayak was found in the vicinity which police believe belonged to the 36-year-old, and his car was found at the Sugars Beach boat ramp.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious and are preparing a report for the state coroner.

It comes after another man drowned while fishing at Sugars Beach, near the Murray Mouth, on Saturday morning, December 4.

The 50-year-old was out on a sandbar with a 16-year-old boy, believed to be his son, when the pair went missing in the water.

The boy was able to swim to shore, but the Rescue Helicopter located the man in the water, and sadly he could not be revived.
