Two British 19 year olds have been rescued from the Playa de los Pocillos in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote. The Emerlan emergency and rescue service in Lanzarote said it happened on Friday at 6.30 pm, when the youngsters were dragged by the current and wind. Several coastguards and a support boat were used in the rescue. An inspection of the British men when on the beach considered they did not need medical treatment. Meanwhile in a separate incident on Saturday, a British man and his son were rescued on the Las Cucharas beach on the Costa de Teguise. Their kayak had been blown into a breakwater. Emerlen said that the action of the lifeguards on the beach was vital in stopping a more serious incident although the father and son suffered numerous cuts to their feet, knees and shoulders. The coastguard said that users of the beach should take special care in high winds, especially if they are using any inflatable in the water. They advised that if you are taken away from the coast on an inflatable and can’t get back to the beach, to never abandon the inflatable and try to make hand signals to the coast or any passing ships.
