Husband Of Death Plunge Woman Made Desperate Phone Call For Help
6:06am 9th December 2014
A woman who fell to her death at Godrevy was from Treswithian.
The 67 year old plunged from the coast path and into a rocky gully on Saturday.
Her husband made a desperate call for help - prompting a big air and sea rescue bid.
Now police are trying to trace a dog walker who let him borrow a mobile to raise the alarm.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are keen to talk to anyone who was on the coastal path at Godrevy Point at around 5pm on Saturday 6 December following the death of a walker who was airlifted from the sea near Hayle in west Cornwall.
"Police received reports that at around 4.50pm on Saturday 6 December, a woman had fallen off the cliff near Godrevy Point in west Cornwall.
"A police helicopter, the rescue helicopter from RNAS Culdrose, and the coastguard cliff rescue team and lifeboat attended the scene to help with the search and recovery.
"Tragically, the 67-year-old woman from Treswithian, Camborne was later pronounced dead at Treliske Hospital. Police are investigating how she came to be in the water, but are not treating the incident as suspicious.
"She is described as 5’7” tall, slim to medium build with short dark hair. At the time she was wearing a purple anorak, dark trousers, light blue walking boots, a lilac hat and stripy gloves.
"Police would like to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to her or her husband before the fall, specifically a man walking two dogs who was approached by the lady’s husband and was asked to use his mobile telephone.
"If you were in the area around the time of the incident, please contact the police on 101 quoting enquiry reference EN/153825/14."
