Desperate search for a man swept out to sea by a giant wave while WALKING on a breakwall – as a horrified walker describes his last moments

A desperate search for a man swept out to sea by a giant wave while walking on a pathway is underway.

Emergency services were called to the Coffs Harbour southern break wall, on the north coast of NSW, at about 6pm on Thursday following reports a man had disappeared.  

A 24-year-old woman told police she was walking in front of the man when a large wave hit the break wall behind her.

‘She turned around and the man had disappeared,’ a police statement read. 

Police, Marine Rescue, NSW Ambulance, Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter and Coffs Harbour Lifeguards arrived at the scene and began to search for the man.
