Blue Pool drowning

A 26-YEAR-old Filipino dairy worker drowned at the Blue Pool near Briagolong on Thursday.

The man was swimming from the northern end of the pool toward the ‘beach’ with a group of four friends about 11.10pm, when he started to have difficulties staying afloat.

Despite attempts by his friends to hold him to the surface, the man lost consciousness and sank.

He had still not resurfaced when police attended the scene an hour later and Police Search and Rescue Squad divers recovered the man’s body at 11.50am on Friday.
