AN ELDERLY man was rescued from a passenger boat off the coast of north Cornwall at about midnight.

The 84-year-old, who was suffering from pulmonary heart failure and respiratory problems, was plucked from the Discovery by the rescue helicopter 169 from the Royal Marine base at Chivenor in Devon.

As the boat was about 50 miles west of Harland Point – between Bude and Bideford – the man was flown to the nearest hospital at Haverford West in Wales.
