Whitby's inshore lifeboat rescues the woman from the harbour

 

A woman was rescued from Whitby Harbour after apparently throwing herself into the chilly water directly opposite The Angel Hotel in New Quay Road.

One alert passer-by saw the woman jump and helped keep her afloat in the water with the help of a paramedic, who was the first of the emergency services on the scene.

Police later attended, but it was not until Whitby’s inshore lifeboat arrived that the woman was pulled from the water.
