Man dies after family swept out to sea


A MAN died after being swept out to sea while he was at the beach with his family on Friday.

The man was with a woman and a two-year-old child when they got into trouble off Fistral Beach on the north-west coast of Cornwall.

Lifeguards managed to rescue all three people but the man died in hospital, the Maritime & Coastguard Agency said.

A spokesman said: “RNLI lifeguards rescued a woman using their jet ski and a man and two- year-old child were recovered from the sea by an RNLI lifeboat.

“The child and man were taken to hospital by coastguard helicopter and the helimed helicopter. The man, sadly, has since died in hospital.”
