Newquay RNLI lifeboat volunteers were called-out at early on Sunday (18 September) to assist police, Newquay and Padstow coastguard teams, ambulance service and the Coastguard rescue helicopter, after a man fell from cliffs at Whipsiderry.
With high tide approaching, the RNLI crew on the charity's D class inshore lifeboat stood-by in case any of the other emergency teams were cut off by the rising spring tide whilst they worked to treat the man and evacuate him from the shore.
The man in his 20s was airlifted to the Royal Cornwall Hospital by the Coastguard rescue helicopter.
