Two women have died and another has been seriously injured after they were swept off rocks into the ocean in south Sydney this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene in Kurnell at around 4.30pm (local time).

One woman was able to exit the water and climb onto rocks where she was assisted by members of the public, said an NSW police spokesperson in a statement.

"Two women were located with assistance from PolAir and pulled from the water unconscious by officers attached to Marine Area Command."

Paramedics gave the two women CPR, but they were unable to be revived and died at the scene.

The third woman was being treated for hypothermia and there were concerns she has a spinal injury.

Two bystanders, who were believed to have tried to help rescue the women, were reportedly being treated for hypothermia.

NSW police have established a crime scene and begun an investigation into the incident, however, "no suspicious circumstances have been identified at this time".
