    PICTURED: Teenager who plunged to his death after jumping into a rock pool at deadly swimming spot

    PICTURED: Teenager who plunged to his death after jumping into a rock pool at a deadly swimming spot that has claimed three lives in six years

    • Heartbroken family members have paid tribute to teen who drowned in rock pool
    • Emergency services were called to Mermaid Pools, south Sydney, on Thursday 
    • Blayd Lyddieth, 17, didn’t resurface after jumping in and his body was recovered
    • Two others have drowned at the deadly Tahmoor swimming spot since 2014 

    A teenager who died when he jumped into a rock pool at a popular swimming spot has been remembered as an ‘angel’. 

    Emergency crews struggled to find Blayd Lyddieth, 17, for almost five hours after he jumped into Mermaid Pools at Tahmoor, southwest Sydney, on Thursday. 

    It is the third death at the pools in the last six years, after a 27-year-old man died in 2016 and a woman drowned in 2014. 

    Mr Lyddieth’s cousin, Brandan Peagam, shared a heartfelt message about his ‘best friend’ who had left him ‘for a better life’.

    ‘I know you’re doing well up there. I love you every single day and there will never be a day that I will let this down. 

    ‘You’re in a much better place now and you deserve everything you get up there.

    ‘Fly high you beautiful angel you will forever and always be missed by family and most of all myself,’ he wrote on social media. 

    Mr Peagam also said he would try to honour his cousin’s wishes.   

    ‘He deserves everything and he will get what he wanted even if I’ve got to do it myself,’ he explained.    

    ‘I miss him so much and I can’t deal without him.’ 

    Heartbroken friends and family members also paid tribute to Mr Lyddieth.    

    ‘May he make them angels laugh the way he made us laugh.

    ‘Going to miss him, the cards against humanity, his music, his spirit and just everything about him,’ one well-wisher wrote. 

    Rescue teams rushed to the swimming spot at 1.40pm on Thursday afternoon. 

    Authorities were told the 17-year-old swimmer didn’t resurface after jumping off a 15m ledge into the rock pool.   

    Paramedics, fire and rescue authorities and police divers were on hand looking for Mr Lyddieth. 

    The teenager’s body was found submerged in the water by rescuers at about 6.15pm.

    A report will be prepared for the coroner.     

    Around 248 people drowned in Australian waterways in 2019-20, according to the latest Royal Life Saving data released earlier this month.

    Of those who drowned, 80 per cent were male.
