Second rescue in two hours for RNLI lifeguards, Lifeboat crews and Coastguards
The alarm was raised by members of the public who contacted the emergency services, that there were two young girls in difficulty in the sea off the Pavilion theatre Rhyl.
Please direct enquiries initially to North Wales Ambulance or UK coastguard at Holyhead for any further info.
Martin Jones, Coxswain at Rhyl lifeboat station said: ' We initially would like to thank the members of the public who originally raised the alarm. If anyone thinks they see anyone in trouble at sea, then they should dial 999 immediately and ask for the Coastguard'.
He added; ' This rescue highlights the excellent teamwork between all the emergency services - the RNLI lifeguards and volunteer lifeboat crew; the UK volunteer coastguards; and also North Wales Ambulance and police services'.
