Subject: Ramsgate RNLI inshore Lifeboat rescues a woman and two children cut off
Easter Sunday festivities were interrupted when Ramsgate RNLI received a call to launch to the rescue of a lady and two children cut off by a rising tide at Dumpton Gap in Broadstairs.
When visiting the seaside please take extreme caution as it is very easy to get stranded by a rising tide. The lady did exactly the right thing by calling the coastguard, always dial 999 if you see anyone or are yourself in danger
