An heroic Cornish dad has given his life trying to rescue his son from the sea near Delabole.
Pirate FM has learnt lifeboat crews found the twenty-seven year old holding onto the sixty year old's body on Sunday.
Rescuers think they were just thirty seconds from a double tragedy.
When the Port Isaac lifeboat arrived the two men had already been in the sea around half an hour after being washed off rocks fishing at Tregardock beach.
They had to order Paul Sleeman to let go of his dad and swim to the boat.
But they say without Peter's rescue bid neither of the men would have made it.
Paul is being treated at the Royal Cornwall hospital.3:15pm 10th April 2012
