Two Boys Rescued From Mud In Gosport
Fire crews are urging people to be careful in muddy areas near the coast after two people had to be rescued in Gosport last night.
It happened near Monks Walk at around 6:30pm last night.
One adult male attempted to rescue the two children and then became stuck himself.
One child was able to get free from the mud before the arrival of crews.
As high tide approached, it was a race against time for two water rescue teams and firefighters from Gosport, Havant and Fareham to complete the rescues.
They quickly got both the other child and the adult to safety using a rescue sled and throw lines.
Station Manager Tim Spencer-Peet, Tactical Advisor at the incident said:
"Even though the weather is lovely and warm at the moment, it does mean that mud flats near water are more of a problem.
"You can never be sure of your footing around these areas and so we advise Hampshire residents to be careful near the water's edge."
Both the children and the adult were assessed on scene by South Central Ambulance Service, but did not require any further treatment.
Crews worked alongside Hampshire Constabulary, Coastguard and South Central Ambulance Service.
The stop message was received at 7:10pm.
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
