Officer in daring sea rescue
The rescue operation at Newquay´s Towan Beach.

A brave policeman put his life at risk to help save a woman in Newquay after she fell from rocks into rough seas­ in the early hours of Sunday.

Police Constable Dan Carthew climbed down to a cove at Towan Beach and pulled the casualty to safety at about 5.15am. A member of Newquay Coastguard used a harness and ropes to bring them back to safety.

The woman slipped into the water while attempting to clamber from the cove around to the promenade after being cut off by the incoming tide. She had been stranded with her boyfriend who managed to get to safety and raise the alarm. The woman and PC Carthew were treated for minor injuries. Superintendent Ian Drummond-Smith stated PC Carthew will be recognised for his heroic actions in saving the woman’s life.
