The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance was called in and landed just feet away from the beach – much to the amazement of onlookers.

Now, Ryan Cuthbert is attempting to identify 2 men and a woman who jointly pulled his mum from the sea and commenced life-saving CPR.

Ryan has said:

“The actions of these 3 people are monumental in the possibility of recovery to her, and i would greatly appreciate it if anybody knows who they are, and could let me know.

“3 angels were there that day, and our family desperately needs an opportunity to thank these individuals for the part they played in the rescue prior to the emergency services arrival.

“Obviously our thanks also extend to the police, paramedics and the air ambulance service too who all responded with haste, and the hospital staff in the high level of care she is still receiving.
