Tragedy at Padstow - 5 May 2013

Details of this heartbreaking incident will emerge in the media soon. I was on a marine patrol this afternoon on the South Coast when I heard the incident in Padstow unfold on the radio. It was distressing enough to listen to and my heart goes out to those directly involved and those from the RNLI, Ambulance crews, SAR Helicopter crews, Harbour Authority staff and my colleagues who had to deal with the incident not to mention any who may have had to witness it unfold. Bank Holidays in Padstow are always busy.

In the meantime if you are going out this Bank Holiday or anytime for that matter PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WEAR YOUR KILLCORD.

A MAJOR rescue operation is under way off the coast of Padstow after a number of people are believed to have been mown down by an out of control speed boat.

Six people are thought to have been thrown from the speed boat, which was in the water near Padstow harbour.

Two lives lost for the sake of a piece of string, what a waste.
