Police are investigating the incident and a report will now be prepared for the Coroner.

While dozens of uniformed police officers, including the rescue squad, covered the headland at Dunningham Reserve and Giles Baths below, Coogee Beach remained busy on Tuesday afternoon with many beachgoers seemingly unaware of the tragedy that had unfolded in front of them.
