Dog Stuck on Cliff rescued by Plymouth RNLI.

Lifeboats News Release

Plymouth RNLI volunteers launch the station’s Inshore Lifeboat 'Annabel E Jones' after a dog was reported to be stuck on the cliff at Jennycliff Beach by a passing Kayaker.

The Dog was located with the help of some kayakers and was soon safely in the hands of the crew. The Dog was reunited with its owner who was waiting on Jennycliff Beach.The Inshore Lifeboat returned to station ready for service.

Please remember to keep dogs on leads if they’re walking close to cliff edges and remember the best thing to do if your pet gets into trouble at the coast is don't enter the water yourself, instead call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

We’re asking the public to help save more lives by sharing some simple survival skills:

• If you find yourself in the water unexpectedly, fight your instincts and float until the effects of cold water shock pass.

If you see someone in difficulty at the coast, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard. To find out more about the RNLI’s beach safety advice, visit rnli.org/Beach2020.
