Bodyboarder injured after colliding with dolphin

Megan Levy March 17, 2014

A bodyboarder has suffered abdominal injuries after colliding with a dolphin in the surf on the NSW south coast, paramedics say.

The 27-year-old man was bodyboarding at Bawley Point, about 25 kilometres south of Ulladulla, on Monday morning when he was struck on the chest while attempting to dive through a wave.

The impact was so great it tore the surfer’s wetsuit, a NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said.

Paramedics were called to the Nuggan Point car park about 9am, and had to walk about one kilometre to reach the beach.

The man was treated for lower abdominal injuries before he was taken to Milton Ulladulla Hospital.

An ambulance rescue helicopter has been called to the hospital and the man is expected to be flown to St George Hospital in a stable condition, the spokeswoman said.
