One man has drowned and two men are in critical condition after swimming at Marengo, near Apollo Bay on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, on Sunday afternoon, despite the heroic actions of a passerby. The three men got into trouble at about 1.15pm after getting in the water at the small coastal town’s beach, which is about 200 kilometres south-west of Melbourne. Victoria Police said a female passerby dragged all three of the unconscious men, one by one, from the water and other beachgoers began CPR. One man was declared dead at the scene while the other two were airlifted to hospital in critical condition. The three men are yet to be formally identified.
