By now most of you might have heard about the surfer deaths near Newquay, in Cornwall. Over the weekend three adults received treatment on Mawgan Porth beach, but later died after being taken to hospital by helicopter.
It’s reported that one woman and two men died in this tragedy. They were pulled from the water unconscious
Four teenagers that were caught in the same RIP current are all safe and well. It’s unclear exactly what happened at this time, although we believe that one of the people that died might have been trying to help children in the water.
Two of the casualties are believed to be in their 40s and the third in their 50s. There’s also mixed reports about why the adults were in the water, some say they were surfing while others say they went in to help the group of children.
The summer months have lifeguards at popular beaches in and around Newquay, although it’s reported this beach didn’t have a lifeguard on duty over the weekend. There will now be a review to decide if lifeguards should work during half-term at this beach in Cornwall.
