The family of a young man who tragically died just five days after being rescued from the surf at a popular beach in Sydney has provided a detailed account of the harrowing experience he went through during the fatal swim. The man, identified as Robin Kadyan, was an exchange student from India and had visited North Curl Curl beach with a group of friends on August 6. Unfortunately, tragedy struck when they became caught in a rip current and were swept out to sea. As a result of the ordeal, Robin suffered irreversible brain damage, and despite the efforts of doctors, he was unable to survive the incident. This heartbreaking news has prompted the family to set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for Robin’s repatriation to India for his funeral.
Emergency services were alerted to the situation at around 4:50pm on August 6 after receiving reports that five people had been swept out to sea. By the time the police arrived at the scene, two men and a woman had managed to make their way back to shore, but a 21-year-old man required assistance and was rescued by members of the surf club in an inflatable boat. He was then treated by paramedics before being transported to Northern Beaches Hospital in a serious but stable condition. On the other hand, Robin was winched out of the water unresponsive by the Life Saver helicopter. Paramedics and an onboard doctor from the TOLL helicopter administered CPR and he was rushed to Northern Beaches Hospital in critical condition. Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries five days later.
Chirag Dalal, who is aiming to raise $75,000 for Robin’s family, emphasized that Robin fought for his life for several days before tragically passing away. Chirag attributed the chaos that unfolded during the incident to the high tides, likely referring to the strong rip currents that posed a significant challenge for the swimmers. Despite their best efforts to assist one another, three individuals, including Robin, had to be rescued by paramedics and lifeguards with the aid of helicopters and boats.
The family is now relying on the generosity of others to gather enough funds to bring Robin’s body back to India for his final farewell.
