A 27-year-old man died at Casuarina Sands on Christmas Day.

He was found unresponsive in the water.

Police and ACT Ambulance Service attended the scene this afternoon.

ACT Policing detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the man’s death, but do not at this stage believe it to be suspicious.

Casuarina Sands is a popular picnic spot on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River. The RiotACT understands the warm weather had attracted several groups to celebrate there this Christmas Day.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.

ACT Policing remind Canberrans to take care when swimming and watch out for each other when in and near the water.
