The combined efforts of Byron Bay Surf Lifesavers and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter have so far failed to retrieve a body from rocks at the bottom of the cliff face at the Byron Bay Lighthouse headland.

The helicopter was sent to the area this morning at 6.45am following reports that a person had fallen from the headland.

On arrival the rescue helicopter located a body at the bottom of the cliff face but could not perform a retrieval due to the difficult rocky area.

A Byron Bay Surf Life Saving jet ski operator was on scene prior to the rescue helicopter’s arrival and could see the body from the waters edge but was also unable to access it.

NSW Police Rescue will now access the scene by foot and prepare the body for retrieval by the rescue helicopter later this morning.
