- 31 August 2009 | Kiteboarding
A kitesurfer has been rescued by the the Blackpool Lifeboat off the Lancashire coast.
Apparently, the sportsman was knocked unconscious by his own kiteboard.
He was then rushed to Lytham and was treated in an ambulance.
Surfing with someone next to you is a very important water safety procedure and can save your life in case of an unexpected accident.
Please, make sure we are seen by other while kiteboarding.
