Six fisherman have been rescued off the Cornish coast in a joint operation involving the Padstow lifeboat and a helicopter from RNAS Culdrose. The crew of the French trawler took to survival suits and abandoned ship yesterday when their vessel was struck by huge waves in gale force winds.
Five of the crew were plucked from the water by the Royal Navy rescue helicopter and the skipper was picked up by the RNLI lifeboat from Padstow. All six crew were brought ashore.
Padstow lifeboat 2nd Coxswain Richard Pitman said, "A great deal of credit must go the winchman on the helicopter. The heavy sea conditions made his job very difficult as he was dragged in and out of the water with the rise and fall of the sea.
"The conditions were challenging and it was a difficult rescue for all involved, we are pleased to have been able to assist."
