Teignmouth lifeboat crew rescue three people

The volunteer crew rescued three people from the water off Watcombe beach, Torquay on Tuesday afternoon.

The request to launch was received at 4.36pm on Tuesday, 6 June 2017 and the crew launched the lifeboat at 4.45pm.

It had been reported that a person had swam about 400 metres off shore from Watcombe beach, Torquay and had become in difficulty. The crew recovered the casualty and took her aboard the lifeboat. It was soon apparent that two people with the casualty were also in the water nearby and were beginning to get into difficulty. The lifeboat crew recovered them as well taking them aboard the lifeboat and transported them all to Babbacombe pier where they were handed over to paramedics for assessment.

The crew and lifeboat returned safely to station at 5.30pm
