FIVE teenagers were rescued by firefighters after becoming stranded on rocks off Jersey’s south coast.
Firefighters using their inshore lifeboat rescued four youngsters from the rocks as water rose above their waist and plucked a teenage girl from the sea as she tried to swim back to the shore. The Fire and Rescue Service said that three of the teenagers were treated by paramedics for the effects of the cold water but did not need hospital treatment.
It is believed that three of the teenagers became cut off by the tide after walking out to the rocks near Grève d’Azette lighthouse on Friday afternoon. Two of their friends then swam out to help the stranded trio.
