Mother and Dogs Rescued from Stranded Beach Situation by Heroic Jet Skier

…By Alan Peterson for TDPel Media. A mother, Leigh Woolliscroft, along with her nine-year-old daughter and a friend, found themselves in a dangerous situation when they were cut off by the tide while walking their dogs on the beach.


Realizing they were becoming trapped by the water, they attempted to head back to shore but soon discovered they were in a spot where the tide comes in from three different directions, leaving them stranded.

The situation became a race against time for the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) to rescue them.

Jet skier Alan Bates, along with two kayakers, came to their aid as volunteers from the RNLI launched their lifeboat.

They helped keep Leigh’s daughter afloat while providing buoyancy to Leigh and her friend.

Leigh, who is from Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, expressed her gratitude to the RNLI, saying she didn’t fully comprehend their role until she needed their help.

She thanked the rescue team from the bottom of her heart and praised their fantastic efforts.

She also highlighted the fact that they are volunteers, emphasizing their selflessness and dedication.
