Bridlington inshore lifeboat crew and Coastguard teams rushed to an area of the south beach near the park and ride car park after reports of a 12 year old boy in difficulties in the sea.
The inshore lifeboat was paged at 4.48 pm (5th August) and the crew made their way to the area at top speed.
On arrival the crew were informed that the boys father had managed to reach the boy and get him back to the beach. Two of the inshore crew went ashore and along with the Coastguard team gave assistance to the boy.
One of the inshore lifeboat crew Pete Jones said ‘ the boy had been out of his depth and we were concerned he could have swallowed some sea water so medical assistance was requested to check the lad was okay’.
