Swanage Sea Front Incident

The team were tasked this morning just before 9am to a report of a car in the water near to the Mowlem.

Working with emergency services colleagues from South Western Ambulance , Dorset Police , Dorset and Wilts Fire and Rescue , Air Ambulance and RNLI, a car was located in the sea and a pedestrian was found to be seriously injured.

There was initial concern that further persons were missing or trapped so the team set up for a water rescue. It was quickly established no other persons were missing so the team provided a cordon and safety cover for the other services.

The team remained on scene for six hours to further support Dorset Police whilst they carried out a detailed search and removal of the car.

Dorset Police have since announced the male pedestrian sadly passed away; our thoughts are with the family.
