Police said the incident was reported to emergency services around 1.30pm.

They are making enquiries on behalf of the coroner.

There have been several water-related deaths this month.

A man died yesterday in a water-related incident at Great Barrier Island, and another man died on Christmas Eve in another water-related incident at Cape Palliser.

A child found unresponsive in the Waltham Swimming Pool in Christchurch on Wednesday was unable to be revived, and police located a body believed to be missing kayaker Jack Skellet in Wellington Harbour on Tuesday night.

A 28-year-old man died in a water incident in Northland earlier this month, and a child died while swimming off Napier’s Marine Parade on 10 December.
