skinny dipper rescued on Brean beach by Coastguards
skinny dipper had to be rescued from Brean beach early this morning
(Tuesday, July 5th) after getting stuck on the mudflats.
23 year-old man, who was not wearing any clothes, was pulled to
safety by Coastguards at 4am after he became stuck in mud 200
yards from the shore.
Coastguard Station Officer Steve Bird told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The man was extremely cold and had suffered a suspected
dislocated shoulder in trying to free himself."
members of the Coastguard team freed him from the mud and walked
him back to safety where Weston Coastguards, who were backing
us up, took him to a waiting ambulance."
The alarm had been raised by a woman, also in her 20s, who was
also covered in mud but otherwise safe and well.
