A man has died in hospital after he was swept out to sea near the Spa in Scarborough's South Bay.
North Yorkshire Police were called at around 6pm yesterday to a report of a man being knocked off the sea wall into the water .
The RNLI and Coastguard also attended the scene of the incident, with air support provided by RAF Leconfield.
An unconscious man was recovered from the water at around 6.40pm and taken to Scarborough District Hospital.
Despite the efforts of paramedics and hospital staff, he was pronounced deceased at hospital.
The man, who has not been named, was from Scarborough and in his thirties.
It is understood that the man was walking in the area with his dog and a friend when he got into difficulties.
The man’s friend was also taken to hospital suffering from shock and the effects of the cold, but has since been discharged.
A family who were walking nearby, raised the alarm with the emergency services.
Two men were taken to hospital after they were rescued from the sea at Scarborough this evening.
The alarm was raised at 6pm when the Humber coastguard received a 999 call informing them that a person had been knocked off the sea wall at South Shore into the sea by a combination of gale force winds and high tides.
It is not known how the second man ended up in the sea but it is believed he went into to try and rescue the other person.
Both Scarborough RNLI lifeboats were scrambled to rescue the two men from the sea between the former swimming pool and the Spa.
The inshore lifeboat was launched in poor visibility at 6.10pm, followed 20 minutes later by the all-weather lifeboat.
It was at high tide, with a 4-5ft swell amplified by the backwash which made the search more difficult, despite the help of a spotlight from a Sea King helicopter from RAF Leaconfield.
Two coastguard teams , one from Scarborough and the other from Burniston, assisted with the search from the beach.
The two men were eventually rescued from the water and both were taken by ambulance to Scarborough General Hospital for treatment.
“We have very high tides at the moment and when you combine this with gale force winds you get very powerful waves.
"Whilst this can look spectacular we would ask people to please admire the force of nature at a distance.
"Breaking waves will knock you off your feet and are extremely dangerous for both you and the people who will be sent to rescue you.”
