This is the dramatic moment two firemen are hurled from a boat while trying to rescue a swimmer in Jersey.

Footage taken on board a lifeboat shows three fire crew battling rough conditions en route to saving a 31-year-old woman off Green Island on Saturday.

One fireman manages to hoist himself back onto the boat while the other remains stranded in the sea for a few moments. He is then pulled back on board.

Joy Godfray was rescued but later died in hospital.
