Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat was launched at 18:48 following reports of a person in difficulties in the water at Maenporth Beach. On arrival on scene the casualty had been recovered from the water onto the beach so two lifeboat crew landed ashore to assist in providing casualty care, before the casualty was airlifted to Hospital. Unfortunately despite everyone’s efforts it was later confirmed that the casualty had sadly passed away and our thoughts go out to their family and friends.

More details to follow shortly.
