Thursday 25th April 2019 ...

 

Sunday 21st April, 3.50 p.m. Godrevy Cove

 

 

The beach was relatively busy - that's the Gwithian lifeguards' jet ski, which had just taken part in a rescue operation (see below)

 

 

We became aware that there was something happening in the sea or on the beach but at this stage we didn't know what

 

 

Both the inshore lifeboat and the all-weather lifeboat from St Ives were present and we discovered that three teenage girls had been swept out on a rip current and had been rescued by a lifeguard from Gwithian on a jet ski.  The lifeboats assisted with the rescue.

 

 

4.08 p.m. The air ambulance landed on the beach

 

 

Soon the coastguard helicopter appeared and landed on the cliff top

 

 

4.26 p.m. The air ambulance took off with one casualty.  We learned later that all the three girls rescued were well

 

 

An eventful afternoon that fortunately ended well
