Episode 3 – 'Daddy's Gone': Hannah Williamson 

Hannah Williamson describes the stomach-churning moment when she realised husband Ben had been taken by a rip.

Beautiful August sunshine, a BBQ, and a bit of bodyboarding – the recipe for a perfect day at the beach. But when Hannah Williamson suddenly loses sight of husband Ben while he’s out on his board at Perran Sands, panic sets in. With no phone signal to call the Coastguard, Hannah starts to think Ben won’t be coming back.

Know the risks and find out what to do if you're caught in a rip current.
