Five Rescued from Casized Dinghy in Teifi Estuary
Two adults and three children have been rescued from the water after their dinghy capsized off Gwbert.
Milford Haven Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) received a 999 call just after 11 a.m. this morning reporting that a group of people were in the water.
The Cardigan Coastguard Rescue Team and the Cardigan RNLI inshore lifeboat were sent to the scene. The lifeboat located those in the water and managed to get them all on board. They were taken ashore where they were met by the Cardigan Coastguard Rescue Team and ambulance crews.
Bob Peel, Watch Manager at Milford Haven MRCC, said, "The two adults and three children were well equipped as all were wearing lifejackets. They were rescued from the water uninjured, just cold and shaken from their ordeal.
"We always want people to have fun but stay safe when out on the water. That’s why we always recommend to those heading out in a boat, canoe, kayak and such like, that they should wear an appropriate lifejacket or buoyancy aid. It’s useless unless worn and could save your life.”
