A woman who drowned in the ocean off Dolphin Point on Wednesday has been identified as Marion Parker from Ulladulla.

Police said the 75-year-old woman’s family had been notified.

Mrs Parker is believed to have been walking along the rocks when she slipped and fell into the water sometime before 11am.

Police said the death was not being treated as suspicious and they would continue to investigate, while preparing a report for the coroner.

Police are also appealing for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.

Mrs Parker’s body was pulled from the water by the South Coast support operations jet ski crew based at Mollymook Surf Club, guided from the air by the Westpac Lifesaver helicopter at 1.30pm.

According to Steve Jones from Surf Life Saving NSW, the body was discovered 250m off shore.

Rough conditions made it difficult to retrieve the body which was floating near rocks in a cove at Dolphin Point, south of the entrance to Burrill Lake.
