In Video: Lifeboat crew launches daring rescue after children get into trouble

UK News | Published:

The children were wearing only shorts and T-shirts, and were suffering from exhaustion due to being exposed to the poor weather conditions.

Dramatic video footage has been released of a brave RNLI lifeboat crew saving two young children caught on a rock groyne in rough conditions off Merseyside.

The lifeboat was able to get close enough to the groyne for one of the volunteers to swim towards them.

Ian Thornton, operations manager at New Brighton Lifeboat, said: “This was a fantastic team effort in dangerous and unpredictable conditions.”
