Broadstairs tombstoning boys swept 100m to sea
- 4 July 2014
- From the section Kent
Two teenage boys were rescued after being swept 100m (328ft) out to sea after "tombstoning" from a harbour wall in Kent.
The pair were spotted struggling jumping off the front of the wall in Viking Bay, Broadstairs.
They were caught by a strong current and swept away.
One of the boys made it back to shore and the other was rescued by the RNLI. "Tombstoning" involves jumping or diving from a height into water.
