A WOMAN is being treated after being rescued from the sea.

The Southend RNLI hovercraft rescued a woman, believed to be in her 20s, from the foreshore off Marine Parade at about 12.50pm.

Paramedics are treating the woman, who was being carried ashore by a group of people, at the lifeboat station.

I was there when this happened, she was NOT drunk. She was very lucky, five men went in and pulled her out, apparently covered in bad cuts. It seemed to take a very long time for the hovercraft to arrive, I dont think she would have survived if them men (and women I think) had not gone in and helped her. She seemed as though she was in one position the whole time, as if something was keeping her from moving? (That what first drew my attention to her I could see her head and water splashing but she didnt seem to be moving in any direction) then this man went in, he then started waving his arms and shouting for help, so I immediately got up and got the girl to ring the coast guard. Totally surprised how many people did absolutely nothing.... Anyway, I really hope this girl will be okay. All the best to her x x x

lt didn`t say she was treated for drowning, just that she was treated after being rescued from the sea., which could have been for hypothermia or another condition.

"A WOMAN is being treated after being rescued from the sea."

Rescued from the sea, sounds very dramatic, but only looks about 3 and half foot deep, could have been trapped in some mud.

headline should be "Woman rescued from 42inches of water" but don't have the same ring to it.

OMG yet another numbskull rescued from the mud in Southend. How many more will there be?!

Dramatic.....No, don't think so.....

However, we must learn from this incident. But what? Well we must learn to put daily tidal movements onto the school curriculum for people who leave their brains at home before going out onto the mud at Southend and being completely unaware of what is going on around them!

Oh and can someone in the know tell me just how much the rescue of this stupid woman cost the taxpayers of Southend. RNLI lifeboats fair enough but air ambulance - not subsequently needed?! Bet THAT did not come cheap

Ellen Graham alleges that this dimwit was NOT drunk. Well, firstly, how do you know, Ellen and, secondly, if not what was her excuse?!

Ellen further states that the hovercraft took a 'very long time to arrive' so no doubt, now, the Echo will be putting the boot into the RNLI as much as they do Southend Hospital?! And finally, Ellen, you said you were 'Totally surprised how many people did absolutely nothing' I imagine, reading that, that you do not actually live in this country as, if you did, you would NOT be surprised that so many people do nothing! This is 21st Century Britain where people are probably too busy trying to film the incident on their electronic devices to even consider helping. Makes you feel great to be British doesn't it?

Anyway, l'm sure this dopey woman will be perfectly fine after her brain scan finds no trace of said organ...

That's all for now folks!

I also have a problem with the use of the word 'heroes' to describe those people who rescued her. Can we PLEASE desist from the MASSIVE overuse of this word?! Yes they were wonderful to go to a drunk woman's assistance but if THEY are heroes what were the brave men from World War 1 and 2 as well as all the other conflicts?! The rescuers went out in waist deep water to rescue numb nuts, that's it! They were NOT under fire from enemy aircraft or artillery!

That stupid woman has put other people's lives at risk - what the hell was she doing there anyway - it didn't look like a 'dramatic rescue' to me - it looked like someone with nothing else to do but get the poor rescue services involved. She should be made to pay for the rescue. I liked the comment from 'keepchavsincages' - made alot of sense.

Although l agree with some of what you say, you are wrong when you state :
"Ellen Graham alleges that this dimwit was NOT drunk. Well, firstly, how do you know, Ellen "

Ellen Graham has clearly stated, above, that she WAS there, so l think she, and not you should be in a better position to judge the state of someone.
Please bother to read the article thoroughly before you croiticise other people.
