A 45-year-old Ballina man was found dead in his car after it was pulled from the water at a boat ramp at the end of Martin Street on Saturday around 9am.
About 9.00am Saturday 15th November, 2014 the Police Rescue Squad was called to the boat ramp at North Creek following reports of a car in the water.
Police Rescue officers entered the water but could not see into the vehicle due to the dark water inside.
A tow cable was attached to the vehicle and back onto the winch of the rescue truck.
Police Rescue pulled the vehicle out of the water and after a while confirmed that there was a deceased male inside the vehicle.
The man’s name has not yet been released.
Acting duty inspector Mat Johnson said the man’s defacto partner had identified the body but it was unclear if all family members had been informed.
Insp Johnson said police were satisfied there were no suspicious circumstances.
