Porthmeor Beach Rescue
10:03am 15th August 2014
A boy is whisked to hospital after impaling his foot while jumping off rocks on a Cornish beach.
The young holidaymaker landed on a metal bar hidden in the sand at Porthmeor.
He had to be cut free and given oxygen before being taken to Treliske.
We are told the area was exposed by an extremely low tide.
Phil Drew, RNLI lifeguard manager said: "It was extremely low tide, with much of the sand at the Pednolva end of the beach which is usually covered by water, exposed. The young boy was jumping down off the rocks onto the sand when he jumped onto the steel bar and it impaled his foot."10:03am 15th August 2014
