FOUR people were treated for hypothermia after entering the sea in Southbourne.

The coastguard were alerted to the scene shortly after 5pm on Saturday by Dorset Police after a woman and three others had entered the water near Gordon's Zig Zag on Southbourne Promenade.

Southbourne Coastguard Rescue Officers attended but the women were already safely on shore.

A South Western Ambulance crew treated all four people, who were thought to be suffering from hypothermia.

A  rescue mission was also launched to rescue a group of paddle boarders at Boscombe beach yesterday.

It is not the best idea to go into the sea at this time of year unless you are use to it or want to surf! I would then still would recommend go with someone who is experienced for health & safety reasons - if not this is what can happen!

Please note that there was no alcohol or drugs involved in this incident, as three of the people who went into the sea were carers who had to go in after their client.

Southbourne Coastguards were very quick to respond to this situation, & I commend this for this.

And according to all the Bournemouth Council Signage & Google Maps, it is called Gordon’s Zig Zag, & the bend in the promenade going towards Southbourne , is known to all beach users as Gordon's Corner.

Due to being a Volunteer Beach Lifeguard down on Bournemouth beach, I am unable to give out more details about this incident.

I was just concerened that a number of local open water swimming clubs & individual swimmers who use that area of the sea may have been impiicated for having to have called out the emergecy services for entering the water in worsening conditions. This was not the case.

On the Gordon's Zig Zag & Corner naming topic, I think we have this man to blame !

"Southbourne owes its name to Dr Thomas
Compton. In 1870 he bought a mile of land east
of what is now Clifton Road, calling it ‘South
Bourne’ and then later ‘Southbourne-on-Se

Really? Have you ever worked with people with learning difficulties? Do you understand how challenging and how strong they can be? Do you expect all people with learning difficulties to be chained up and not allowed to live as normal life as possible? I'm sure they didn't just allow the client to go into the sea.
