'Exhausted and Hypothermic' Swimmer Rescued After Being Swept Out to Sea

Volunteers with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) rescued a swimmer who was swept out to sea off the coast of Kirkcaldy, Scotland, on October 31.

The RNLI uploaded this video showing a team coming to the aid of the woman, who had been pulled out by a riptide. The woman was “exhausted and hypothermic” when she was rescued, they said.

In the post, the RNLI said that she “was definitely saved by her own equipment,” including a tow float, along with the “prompt actions of the people she had been swimming with.” Credit: Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat via Storyful
