It's emerged tonight that all three people who lost their lives on a Cornish beach at the weekend had gone into the water to try to rescue a group of teenage boys.
This afternoon ITV News spoke to the family of one of the victims, Kevin Reynolds, as they returned to the beach to lay flowers:
A friend of Kevin Reynolds, one of the victims of Sunday's surfing tragedy at Mawgan Porth near Newquay, has paid tribute to him.
The man, who lived in a neighbouring flat in St Austell, said:
Kevin and Rachel, his girlfriend, went there to surf for the day.
They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Initially, they went in to surf but the conditions were too rough so they came back in.
They noticed that some teenagers were getting into trouble so they rushed out to help them.
It was Kevin, Rachel and that poor guy from Leeds. They all acted totally selflessly, rushing into danger to help other people.
That's what he was like, totally selfless and noble. He was just trying to help. I hate to imagine what would have happened if he hadn't been there.
Me and Kevin were good mates. He was one of the loveliest blokes you could ever meet.
He was always laughing and joking with the neighbours. He was really popular in these flats.
Last time I saw him was Sunday morning. I knew something was wrong when he wasn't leaving for work on Monday morning, because we usually leave at the same time.
Mr Reynold's teenaged son Michael posted a news article about the tragedy on his Facebook page and wrote simply "R.I.P. Dad."
Pal Jeanette Worth responded to say: "So sorry to hear of your loss michael. There are no words that can take away your pain - just know that we are all thinking of you xx"
Another friend wrote: "Were all here for u brov, love u 2 the moon and back xx"
Two of the victims of Sunday's surfing tragedy at Mawgan Porth near Newquay have been named.
They are 44-year-old Kevin Reynolds and 42-year-old Rachel Dunn, both from St Austell.
A 52 year-old man from the Leeds area has not been named by police but has been identified as Stuart Calder, a knee surgeon from Leeds.
