RESCUERS are warning Easter sunseekers to be on their guard after a teenage boy had to be rescued after getting stuck in quicksand in Cumbria.
The 15-year-old had been trying to retrieve a ball at the shore when he became trapped up to his knees at Arnside pier, just before 11.30am yesterday.
It took three rescuers from Cumbria Fire Service and the RNLI 15 minutes to pull him free from the sand.
A spokeswoman for RNLI warned members of the public “to always be vigilant on the sands.”
The teenager is not believed to have been injured but he was taken to hospital as a precaution.
