Emergency services have recovered the body of a male at the bottom of a cliff in Nowra near the Shoalhaven River.

A member of the public contacted police around 11am on Tuesday (July 24), saying they had seen a body at the bottom of a cliff adjacent to the entrance to Shoalhaven District Hospital on the Shoalhaven River edge.

NSW Ambulance Rescue Paramedics abseiled down the cliff and found a male deceased.

Officer in charge of Nowra Police Station Inspector Ray Stynes said police and detectives had attended the scene and established a crime scene.

He said investigations were continuing.

“There is no suggestion the man was a patient or had anything to do with Shoalhaven Hospital,” Inspector Stynes said.

He said the man, at this stage, remained unidentified.

The man’s body was recovered by paramedics and members of the State Emergency Service, who manned the abseiling ropes, and was taken to Greys Beach by police launch.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
