One man and his dog are rescued from their sinking kayak at St Ives.

You can watch the operation to get them to safety at Porthmeor beach below.

RNLI lifeguards were setting up the beach for the day’s patrol at about 9.45am when they received a call from the National Coastwatch Institute volunteers based on St Ives Island to the south of Porthmeor beach. They were concerned about a man who kept falling out of his kayak.

Just as they were taking the call, the man came round the corner and became visible to the lifeguards. Jack Hill and Adam Bayfield went out on rescue boards to check he was ok and offer assistance. On arriving, the kayak had capsized. Conditions were flat calm and sunny and the lifeguards were able to pull the kayak in, with Milly the dog on top and the man holding onto the back.

Once on shore it transpired that the gentleman had forgotten to put the bung in the kayak which meant it was taking on water and subsequently flipped over. Once the bung was in place and the lifeguards helped empty out the water, he and Milly set off again on the kayak.
