Three men have died after their boat capsized and smashed into rocks in Sydney.
Emergency services were called to Henry Head Lane at La Perouse in south-east Sydney, near Botany Bay, at 12.30pm on Sunday.
CPR was performed on two of the victims, who have not been identified, but all three died on the scene.
A Westpac Rescue Helicopter and a Toll NSW Ambulance Rescue Helicopter were called to the scene and ‘pulled multiple persons from [a] capsized boat’, according to a tweet.
Helicopter vision showed an overturned boat smashing against rocks, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command are at the scene where an investigation into the incident is underway.
It is not believed there were other people on the boat at the time of the accident.
A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
