An eight year old boy was pulled into a lifeboat from the water at Appley beach in Ryde on the Isle of Wight yesterday. The Solent coastguard helicopter then airlifted the child to St Mary's Hospital in Newport.
Thousands of people were in the area at the time for Armed Forces Day. The boy was later transferred to Southampton Hospital where his condition was described as critical but stable.
