HM Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew following a report 2 PWC’s (jet ski’s) were in difficulty.

The lifeboat proceeded to Newton where it located the two PWC’s. One PWC had towed the other back to Newton Bay. On further investigation the crew discovered the owner of one of the PWC’s had got stuck on the beach near Ogmore By Sea in the process of his PWC being towed away.

The lifeboat proceeded to Ogmore By Sea in order to check the casualty was okay, locating them on the beach on the Newton side of the river. The casualty was recovered onto the lifeboat and returned to the slipway at Newton.
