A teenager has saved the life of a toddler who experienced every mother's nightmare - falling over 15 feet into the sea of Falmouth Wharf.
James Brooks, 19, says he was fishing with friends when he saw the 2-year-old boy slip between railings and plunge into the sea.
The child's mother wants to remain anonymous, but James has been speaking to us about what happened.
The first basking sharks of 2015 have been spotted arriving near Falmouth.
They turn up near Cornwall's southern coastline every year but are not normally seen until the middle of May.
However our increasingly warmer waters are luring them earlier and it is thought the recent warm weather may have prompted the arrival of these two sharks.
The sharks were filmed on Wednesday at Cadgwith and Coverack off the Lizard peninsula on the southern tip of Cornwall.

Royal Mail has launched a set of stamps celebrating comedy greats and they include the recently appointed Chancellor of Falmouth University, Dawn French.
The comedienne appears along side her performing partner of many years Jennifer Saunders.
For decades, the UK has long boasted some of the most influential and significant comedy talent in the world.
This set of stamps rightly pays tribute to the comedians who have made the nation laugh out loud at their ground-breaking comedy genius.
Royal Mail vans in the locations with strong links to the comedians will feature an image of the relevant stamp.
A military hospital ship which left Falmouth in September to help combat the Ebola crisis in West Africa is to receive a special award.
The RFA Argus will receive an Admiralty Board Letter of Commendation. It's thought this is the first time the award has been granted to an operational unit.
During her deployment to Sierra Leone Argus has made a significant contribution to the UK's effort to halt the spread of Ebola.
She has helped to establish the crucial medical treatment centres and has provided vital transport capability allowing medical workers to reach the areas most affected by the disease and by providing medical reassurance to the British personnel deployed to the region.
An exhibition opens at Falmouth's maritime museum today showing the impact the Vikings had on Britain when they invaded more than twelve hundred years ago.
The south west was their first port of calls and they frequently raided settlements on the north Cornish coast.
Artefacts on display include the swords and axes they used in battle.
Gareth Williams is a Viking Expert.
Local residents today paid tribute to PC Hocking after his funeral.
He had time for everybody, he made everyone feel special, the quintessential police officer. He found time, he was compassionate and fair, he upheld the law, that's what the community wants, but he respected the community and quite clearly the community respected him. He was the epitome of what policing should be, but a family man who loved people, and people loved him.
It's just the way he was, someone described him as Dixon of Dock Green, you know friendly, he always had a laugh and a joke with everybody and I think he used to go in nearly all the shops.
He did his job cheerfully and was sincere.
He was one of the best, he was good at his job and he was a gentleman, he had a laugh and a joke with everybody, he loved my dog and he'll be greatly missed.
Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer of Devon & Cornwall Police told ITV News it was an emotional day for Falmouth.
"I think everybody shed a tear today, including the Chief Constable. He had the love of his family and the love of the town."
The funeral will take place today today of 52-year-old PC Andy Hocking, the Falmouth police officer who died suddenly nearly two weeks ago.
On Saturday around six thousand people turned up for a memorial walk in his honour. He was widely known in the town and had won awards for his work.
Chief Inspector Ian Drummond-Smith posted this picture of flowers left by the community after PC Andy Hocking's death on Sunday.
