Woman rescued by emergency services from high rising tide at Bardsea Beach
Furness Coastguard were paged this afternoon at 1217 to assist North West Ambulance Service in the extrication of a casualty from Bardsea Beach.
High Water was due at 1325 at a height of 9.3m. Due to the position of the casualty the incident soon became a high risk incident due to the immobility of the casualty and the quick high rising tide covering the area.
Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service provided vital assistance in the Rescue with JESIP providing a link between both services.
We wish the person a full recovery from her injury.
If in any danger around the Coast, Dial #999 and ask for the Coastguard.
