Tombstoner Narrowly Escapes Injury
7:02am 2nd July 2012
Pirate FM has learnt a teenager has come close to being dragged into a boat's propeller after tombstoning in Falmouth.
He had jumped from the Prince of Wales Pier.
It is sparking a fresh danger warning from police.
George Pill runs fishing trips in the harbour. He said, "It's a way of growing up. Everyone does it and you're not going to stop it. You can only put a sign up on the quay saying, 'Do Not Jump in the Path of the Boats.' I've had kids come onto the quay, egging each other on to jump and when the boats come in, they jump and I've blasted my horn basically to tell them to get out of the water."
Neighbourhood beat officer PC Andy Hocking fears it is an accident waiting to happen. He said, "It's a potentially lethal activity and the boat owners are genuinely frightened an incident is going to turn into an accident and somebody is going to get seriously hurt. They don't want to be involved in that kind of thing.
"Where people are actually endangering other members of the public and potentially causing a public nuisance we do have powers. The law does cater for this sort of eventuality."7:02am 2nd July 2012
