The Westpac Rescue Helicopter say they were called to an Ocean Shores residence today after a young man was pulled unconscious from a pool.

The service say they responded to a call at 3.20pm this afternoon.

NSW Ambulance Paramedics arrived on scene and commenced treatment of a 17 year old male who had been pulled unconscious from a pool – shortly after the helicopter arrived and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team assisted.

The man regained consciousness and began to breathe at the scene. He was assessed at the residence and transported by NSW Ambulance Paramedics to Tweed Heads Hospital in a stable condition for further assessment and treatment.
