Just heard on the grapevine that a body has been recovered from the river Mersey at New Brighton. Thats all I know at the moment. Some heartbreaking News for one family to hear today. Will say a little prayer for them all.
i was down there when the police and everybody else turned up..he had fallen in at seacombe ferry & was shouting for help but they couldnt get to him in time,he was took out of the river at the eggy ferry..so so sad,not nice to see ..my thoughts are with his family
At this time nobody is sure how he came to be in the water. Police where there within a minute of the incident being called in. He had been shouting for help but was to far out due to the tide going out for anyone on the prom to actually do anything other than point at him until the RNLI arrived. By that time unfortunaly it was to late as he had been in the water approx 25/30 minutes. I did see a number of people taking pictures. Lets hope nothing insensitive appears on the net!
