    St Mary's lifeboat said the casualties, who were all airlifted to hospital in Truro, were lucky to be alive after being washed on to rocks and hit by their vessel in a channel where the tide was running fast. 

    Skippering the Osprey close by, Andy Howell was taking a group wildlife watching. His passengers helped spot the casualty in the water. 

    He said: "I saw this massive great wave coming up, he was right in it and went shooting off down the face of it – like a big surfing wave – and heading straight into the shoreline. We saw two people up on the rocks ... we went in a bit closer, we had to be careful obviously; spotted a third, and then spotted somebody else in the water shouting 'help', saying he was 'going to sleep', and I thought we’ve got to go and get him.”
