Emergency services were called at the scene, and a joint extensive search operation involving officers from Central West Police District, NSW Ambulance paramedics, and the State Emergency Service located the body of missing about 6.15 pm.
In a separate incident at Berowra National Park, two Nepalese men lost their lives and one hospitalized. Three mates entered the river and reported two of them missing. The third one was rescued from the water with breathing difficulties and treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics. The third one is out of danger situation as reported. NSW Police not officially disclosed the identity of dead swimmers through Nepalese community members already naming and writing condolence messages on facebook walls.
