A fisherman has plunged into the sea at Fistral - after being washed off rocks by a wave.

The thirty-seven year old angler was in the water for fifteen minutes yesterday afternoon.

RNLI lifeguards Lewis Timson and Arron Evans plucked him to safety - and paramedics got him to hospital.

Lifeguard Lewis Timson said: "We could see other anglers on the rocks who were all waving and pointing to a spot in the water so we headed straight for it. We located the man and picked him up on the rescue sled with Arron securing him in position.

"By this point he'd been in the water for around 15 minutes and the swell had stripped him of his t-shirt and shoes. He was conscious and breathing but he was very cold and had swallowed a lot of water.

"We took him straight to the RNLI lifeguard unit on Fistral beach, tried to bring his temperature up and administered oxygen until paramedics arrived and took over casualty care. He was transported to hospital via land ambulance."

The volunteer RNLI D class lifeboat crew landed on Fistral beach to ensure everything was ok before both lifeboats headed back to station.
