AN ELDERLY woman was airlifted to Treliske Hospital, Truro last week after being knocked off her feet by a large wave.
The woman, thought to be in her 70s, suffered serious knee injuries from the incident, which happened at around 3pm.
Members of the Land's End coastguard rescue team attended the scene last Tuesday and, after assessing the injury, the RNAS Culdrose Search and Rescue helicopter was called.
With help from the coastguard team and lifeguards on Porthcurno beach, the casualty was transferred to the helicopter before being airlifted to hospital.
