Two men, rescued by Coast Guard teams, thanked the men who saved their lives.

The two, called Daniel and Lewis, explored Danes Woods near Flamborough as they slipped and fell 20 feet to the bottom of a ravine.

Rescue services were sent to the scene, where they spent three hours getting the couple out.

In the delicate operation, the crews were finally able to free the two men at 2 am, were taken to safety there and immediately taken to the hospital.

Now both have met the Bridlington Coastguard Rescue Team to thank them for saving their lives.

The crews rescued the two men

In a post on their Facebook page, the crew said, "Two young men met and thanked the rescue workers who saved their lives during a three-hour rescue operation.

In the early hours of September 16, 2018, the Bridlington and Filey Coastguard teams were charged with reports of two injured men at the foot of a ravine near Danes Woods, Flamborough.

"Daniel and Lewis exploring the forest with friends had fallen 20 feet to the end of the gorge. Both men suffered injuries, were extracted with technical rescue methods and taken to a hospital.

"Although the young men and the family were not fully fit enough, they came together to meet the team team that worked with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service and the Humberside Police on a three-hour rescue operation."

Adam Mainprize, station officer for the Bridlington Coastguard Rescue Team, said: "It was a technical rescue that required all the skills we needed as Coastguards.

"It was nice for the team to meet both young men and their families, and it's nice to hear that both recover well after such a traumatic ordeal."
