A 38-year-old man has died in a boating accident near Forster on the Mid North Coast. The man was one of four people onboard the yacht, which was making its way to Sydney, when he was struck by the vessel’s boom in the early hours of Monday morning.

Despite being pulled from the water, attempts to resuscitate the man proved unsuccessful. It’s understood the boat was around 12 kilometres offshore when the accident happened. Thread here.
