Lifeguards use boat to rescue bodyboarders
RNLI lifeguards providing weekend safety cover on Polzeath beach rescued four people, including two children, on Saturday afternoon.
The incident happened at high tide at around 5pm when the two children, who were bodyboarding, were pushed by a large surge of water onto rocks.
Two adults who were also bodyboarding nearby saw what had happened and went to assist them while the RNLI lifeguards on duty, Phil Bartlett and Mike Jones, launched the in-shore rescue boat.
They picked the two children up first, dropping them back at the beach, before returning for the two adults. No one was hurt in the incident.

John Bull, RNLI lifeguard supervisor, said: "There was some big surf this weekend, with high winds and big tides creating strong rip currents on the beaches. Thankfully, the RNLI lifeguards were on duty and able to react extremely quickly to ensure all the bodyboarders were picked up quickly and brought back to shore safely.''
