All sailings have been cancelled today on the Fowey to Mevagissey ferry because of forecast sea conditions
Emergency crews and both Fowey lifeboats were called to the river at Fowey last night after a man drove off the ferry slipway. He managed to escape from his car and swim to shore. He was taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital for treatment.
Divers checked that there was no one else in the water.
The harbour arranged for the car to be removed.
