27-year-old Paul Sleeman and 60-year-old Peter Sleeman had been fishing at a beach in Cornwall, Britain when large wave swept Paul off the rocks and into the rough see, his dad trying to save him with a lifebelt before being dragged also into the surf by another huge wave. They were both in the lifebuoy when rescuers arrived 30 minutes later, read the Mirror:
RNLI volunteer Damien Bolton said yesterday: “We saw the men near the cliff. They were being thrown into the rocks like they were clothes being tumbled around in a washing machine.
“The son was holding his father and both were in a lifebuoy. The father was face down in the sea.
“I told the son he would have to let go of his dad and swim towards us.
