A person has died in a water-related incident at Narrow Neck Beach on Auckland’s North Shore.
Police and ambulance were called to the beach near Devonport around 5.50pm Sunday.
A police spokesperson said the person appears to have suffered a medical event in the water.
They said the person had either gotten out or been taken out of the water and received medical attention on the shore, but did not survive.
The death will likely be referred to the Coroner who would ultimately rule on cause of death.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
