Teenager Plunges from Cliff at Tintagel
7:01am 7th August 2013
A teenager has been rescued after plunging fifty feet down cliffs at Tintagel.
He and mates had clambered down to explore Merlin's cave below the castle on Tuesday afternoon.
But they got stuck on the way back up - and one lad broke his ankle falling onto rocks.
Coastguard rescue teams from Boscastle and Port Isaac, the Port Isaac lifeboat plus a helicopter from Chivenor were scrambled.
The rescue operation was co-ordinated by Ian Guy at Falmouth Coastguard. He said: "Not just the north coast and around Tintagel, but around the Cornish coast in general the cliffs are rugged and not very forgiving. Just don't go climbing cliffs. It's not a very sensible practise.
"The one who fell, we believe fell around fifty feet and injured his ankle. But falling that distance onto those sort of rocks - it could have been a lot worse."7:01am 7th August 2013
