Men rescued from water by firefighters

Wyatts View, St Anne’s, Bristol

Two men have been rescued from the water after falling in.

When crews arrived they found the men struggling to stay afloat in the water.

Using the Safe Working at Height and Confined Spaces (SHACS) equipment and a triple extension ladder, crews were able to assist the men to safety.

One was given CPR at the scene by firefighters and paramedics and the other was treated for hypothermia. Both were taken to hospital by ambulance where one man sadly died.
