TWO kayakers suffering with hypothermia have been rescued by emergency crews today (Friday) after their kayak was swept away.
Coastguard teams from the Needles and Ventnor, as well as Yarmouth Lifeboat, were called to Freshwater Bay at 11.43am after it was reported the kayakers were stuck on rocks cut off from land.
Solent Coastguard confirmed two people required a cliff rescue and were suffering from slight hypothermia. One of the kayakers had also suffered cuts to their face.
*A spokeswoman for St Mary's Hospital said the kayakers — an 18-year-old male and a 19-year-old female — were being assessed by doctors but were said to be in a satisfactory condition.
