Conwy river rescue of Llandudno man, 70, caught on camera

Dramatic footage has been released of the moment a 70-year-old man was rescued after falling into water in Conwy at the weekend.

David Stocks, from Llandudno, fell into the water at 12:15 GMT on Saturday afternoon as he tried to board his boat on the River Conwy.

Despite the outgoing tide he managed to grab hold of a vessel to try and stay afloat in the freezing water until help arrived.

Mr Stocks has since returned to Conwy RNLI Lifeboat Station to thank the volunteer crew who saved his life.
