A woman is recovering in hospital tonight after being swept out to sea in Newquay.
It's believed the woman, who is in her early 30's, was pursuing her dog at Little Fistral beach in the town, when she was caught by a wave and taken 60 metres out to sea.
Two brothers, trained in rescue and first aid, saw her and used a life-ring to save her. Falmouth Coastguard said this evening she is 'very lucky to be alive'.
In a dramatic resue, the Inshore lifeboat and helicopter from RNAS Culdrose winched the woman and took her to Treliske hospital, where she is recovering from hyperthermia.
