A FAMILY on a seaside stroll were moments from death after getting stranded on a sandbank.
The two adults and two children were trapped by the tide more than 200 yards from shore.
Beachgoers called 999 and a Coastguard vessel was scrambled.
It picked up the group with “seconds to spare” before the sand disappeared beneath the sea.
A photo taken by the crew shows the family in peril at West Shore, Llandudno, North Wales.
A spokesman for Llandudno Coastguard said: "The family were picked up by a passing vessel in the channel seconds before the sand they were standing on disappeared beneath the sea."
The Coastguard also urged people to exercise close to home where possible.
"The message remains the same here in Wales, stay at home but you may leave home to exercise locally.
"Now more than ever we need people to respect our coast. The sea can still catch you out.
"We will still come to your aid, but remember, your choices might put people, including you and frontline responders, at risk.
"Please take extra care during these extraordinary times."
