Survival Suit Mistaken For Dead Body

Weymouth Inshore Lifeboat

12:19pm 26th February 2014

Weymouth life boat was called out to the White Nothe in Weymouth Bay yesterday after what was thought to be a body was spotted floating in the water.

Coastguard Rescue Officers from Wyke Regis also joined the search party.

But what they found wasn't a body.

It was survival suit - which is a special type of dry suit that keeps you floating and protects you from hyperthermia if you fall into the sea.
