One of Australia’s leading GPs is in a critical condition in hospital after being pulled face down from the surf on the Gold Coast at the weekend.

According to media reports, off-duty lifesavers performed CPR on Professor Chris Del Mar, 69, on Sunday morning, shortly after a member of the public rescued him at Miami Beach.
