Prawle Point Coastguard Rescue Team have helped rescue an eight-year-old who had fallen on rocks.

Prawle Point Coastguard Rescue Team were called to assist South Western Ambulance Service on Thursday, 14 April, after an eight-year-old girl had fallen on her back on rocks at North Sands, Salcombe. 

As the tide was coming in quickly, the decision was made to move the casualty using the Coastguard's rescue stretcher.

Once she was safely back on the beach, she was taken under the care of the ambulance crew. 

If you see anyone in difficulty on or near the coast or tidal estuary, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
