Police responded to the emergency call with a lifesaver helicopter shortly before 3:45 on Monday evening. The crews put green dye in the water to trace the water current. The responders found the boy's body 30 minutes later in the water.

He was then pulled onto a police boat and quickly winched to the land, but the paramedics couldn't revive him and pronounced dead at the scene. Chief Inspector Chris Hill told Sydney Morning Herald,

He was here with a group of friends to go whale watching. They've made their way down onto the rock platform at this stage it appears to be misadventure where he's slipped and fallen over the edge.

Police have been trying hard to identify the teenager and to notify the boy's family, told the police spokesman to Daily Mail Australia.
