Three people including 15 month old baby rescued from rocks in Cornwall

Two adults and a 15 month old baby were rescued from rocks in Cornwall yesterday afternoon by the Coastguard helicopter.

Just after 1.10pm on Sunday 10 June HM Coastguard received a 999 call from a family who'd found themselves trapped by an incoming tide in the water near Bedruthan Steps in Newquay.

Newquay and Mawgan Porth Coastguard Rescue Teams, Newquay Lifeboats and the Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Newquay were quickly sent to the scene. Thankfully before the teams arrived the young family had managed to scramble out of the water onto the rocks but were not out of danger yet.

The crew from the RNLI managed to swim to the family and treat the casualties who had minor cuts and abrasions from the rocks. The Newquay helicopter winched the onboard first and then winched the father and the little baby in a special child rescue valise which is basically a carry cot modified for winching.

Despite their ordeal no ambulance was required and the family were safe and well.
