Dramatic moment children are plucked from rough seas off Merseyside

Dramatic footage shows the moment an RNLI lifeboat crew saved two children caught on a rock groyne on rough seas off New Brighton in Merseyside.

During the June 28 rescue mission one volunteer crewman swam twice from the lifeboat to the stranded children and back, pulling them to safety through the turbulent water.

Once ashore, the exhausted children received care from the North West Ambulance service, and were treated for shock, minor cuts, mild hypothermia and possible secondary drowning.

Dramatic rescue as boat gets caught under ferry

This footage captures a dramatic rescue as a boat gets caught under a ferry. Two lifeboats were called on June 21 to a report that a 24ft yacht was pinned against a chain ferry. The shrimper, which had two people on board, had become entangled with the chain ferry on the inside of Poole’s harbour entrance. The combination of the tide and the wind hampered any chance of the vessel getting free. RNLI volunteers managed to free the two vessels, and no one was harmed in the incident.
