Two beaches (Widemouth and BlackRock) were reported as closed on Friday after an unconscious surfer was pulled out of the water by the RNLI lifeguards. The surfer was taken to hospital by ambulance after being given CPR by lifeguards.
The male surfer was found in trouble in the water around 30 metres north of the lifeguarded beach at Widemouth, out towards Black Rock.
No further details are yet available. Here’s hoping he will be alright. Can only once again praise the lifeguards for their prompt action and consistent efforts to keep people safe in the water.
