Multiple incidents in two hours for both RNLI lifeboats and lifeguards at Rhyl
Between 2pm and 4.15pm on Sunday 5 June, Rhyl RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew, lifeguards, and Coastguards dealt with many incidents on the shoreline between Rhyl and Llandulas.
Both the lifeboats were then recovering at Rhyl, when it was reported that there were two children from separate families missing at the water's edge, and so the boats remained on the shore on standby. Luckily the children were spotted on the beach and reunited with their families. The incidents were completed by 4.15pm.
Screen grabs of a video taken by the RNLI inshore lifeboat crew are attached. the video will be published on Monday 6 June.
Paul Frost MBE, acting Coxswain says " The RNLI lifeguards and Lifeboat crew, together with HM coastguards, worked together to keep the beaches safe and promote safety messages"
