Due to its isolation and gender-specific nature it became a popular spot for nudists, but in the 1970s during the women's liberation movement, a group of female equal-rights activists plunged into the waters, now it is open to women and children as well." The Coast Guard arrived and took the injured man to Sandy Cove Point where he was removed by Ambulance to St. Vincent's Hospital. He passed away later this afternoon. "A file will be prepared for the Coroners Court. Investigations ongoing."
