Jill Banstone stumbled across the harrowing scene near the Glenelg Jetty in Adelaide while strolling across the beach early this morning.

She found the body of a 61-year-old man face down in the shallow water while out with her pet labrador at around 6.50am.

Jill said she had noticed something unusual floating in the sea and immediately alerted emergency services.

The local told 7News: "I realised when I got closer it wasn't a rock. He was face down."

Police then faced a race against time to recover the victim's body before the tide came in.
