WATCH: Bird's-eye view of a rescue off Cornwall

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 6:26am 8th September 2018. (Updated at 8:12am 8th September 2018)

Footage taken over the Cornwall coast has captured a bird's-eye view of Penlee lifeboat out on a shout.

The clip has been posted on Youtube by Tim Richardson and shared by Penlee Lifeboat on Facebook.

It was filmed in August when the crew rushed to help a small yacht. 

The clip's sky view angle shows just how the the lifeboat lines up along side the boat in trouble, secures a tow and then escorts it back to safety at the harbour. 

The short film also captures stunning footage of our coastline.


"Worth a watch - the view from above courtesy of Tim Richardson...you never know who’s watching over you."

Commenting on the RNLI facebook post which shared the view, one person called the footage "stunning".
