Barely Conscious Woman Pulled From Sea
7:01am 31st March 2014
A woman has been pulled barely conscious from the sea near Hayle.
It is thought she got cut off at Black Cliffs and then fell as she scrambled to get clear.
A helicopter from RNAS Culdrose took her to Treliske.
A spokesperson for St Ives lifeboat told how the crew hauled her to safety: "After beaching the boat they pulled the woman from the water and began to administer first aid as she was barely conscious by now.
"It is believed that she became cut off by the tide, tried to climb out but fell back into the water and could not get out.
"After first aid treatment from the inshore lifeboat crew, the woman was then winched into a Search and Rescue Helicopter from RNAS Culdrose and taken to Treliske Hospital, before the inshore lifeboat crew returned to St Ives."
Twenty-four hours later the lifeboat was called back after a paddleboarder got stuff twenty feet up the cliff.
A spokesperson said: "The inshore lifeboat crew were asked to stand off the cliff face and wait in case the paddle boarder got into difficulty, while the Coastguard cliff rescue teams rigged up the necessary apparatus to go down and rescue him.
"Although the paddle boarder lost his board as it was smashed up in the cove by the strong sea, he was OK, and once he was safe and sound the inshore lifeboat crew returned to St Ives after an hour at sea."7:01am 31st March 2014
