The heroic rescue of two people stuck on cliffs by a Pembrokeshire lifeboat crew will feature on the BBC’s Saving Lives at Sea next week.

The final episode of the eighth series of the popular TV show Saving Lives features St Davids Lifeboat crew, working with the local coastguard team, in a dramatic cliff rescue.

The popular 10-part documentary, Saving Lives at Sea is now in its eighth series and includes the lifesaving work of RNLI lifeguards and volunteer lifeboat crews from around the UK and Ireland.

Including interviews with lifeboat crews and lifeguards, the series will also hear from those rescued and their families who, thanks to RNLI lifesavers, are here to tell the tale.

This forthcoming episode, on Thursday, November 30, includes the St Davids RNLI rescue of people stuck on a cliff at Caerfai, alongside rescue stories from their colleagues at other stations and beaches around our coasts.

The rescue involved two youngsters who got stuck on the cliffs on June 7 this year.

Fishguard and St Davids lifeboats and coastguard teams as well as coastguard helicopter were involved.

One casualty was recovered down the cliff to the awaiting lifeboat, while the other was winched off by the coastguard rescue helicopter.

“Our lifesaving work would not be possible without donations from the public and we are delighted to be able to share a frontline view of the rescues they support with their kind generosity,” said St Davids Lifeboat coxswain Will Chant, Coxswain at St Davids who features in the upcoming episode.

In 2022, RNLI lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland launched 9,312 times, saving 389 lives, while the charity’s lifeguards aided 23,204 people and saved 117 lives on some of the UK’s busiest beaches.
