Mother Sounds Warning After Husband Dies In Riptide

According to reports, Michael Sneddon, a father of six from the Central Coast of Australia, and his son Cody, who is ten years old, were at Ettalong Beach at 2:30 on Saturday morning when they were entangled in a rip current. They were around one hundred forty feet (50 meters) offshore.

According to relatives, Sneddon tried to get his kid out of the sea before two jet skis arrived to save the boy.

Maritime Services and paramedics tried and failed to resuscitate Mr. Sneddon.

Sneddon’s mother, Lilian Sneddon-Camilleri, wept over her son, saying he loved his son.

The distraught mother described her final conversation with Sneddon as a New Year’s greeting on Friday, and she was still reeling from the news when she heard it.

The disaster occurred at Ettalong Beach, and Camilleri warned families against swimming there.

Antonio Sneddon, the youngest brother of Sneddon, spoke highly of his loved ones in the extended family. According to him, witnesses say Sneddon and Cody were standing on a sand barge when it suddenly gave way, sending them tumbling into the ocean.

The family thanked the first responders and beachgoers racing to Cody’s aid. According to Antonio, members of his brother’s family will invite officials from NSW Ambulance and LifeSaving NSW to attend the burial in recognition of their assistance on that day.

On Saturday, witnesses at Ettalong Beach said that after hearing the cries echoing in the waves, they assumed it was a different kind of emergency.

Tragically, two other men drowned on Christmas Day – one at Umina Beach and another in his 80s at Copacabana Beach – leaving The Central Coast area in a somber mood. The father’s death adds to that.

According to Surf Lifesaver NSW, nine people have died in coastal areas this summer.

They are trying to get the word out that you should remain between the yellow and red flags so these “tragic situations” don’t happen again.
