Meanwhile, there was a high tide and the youth were stranded on the rocks, giving tense moments to people on the beach and the rescuers. Based on information, the police and rescue party reached the beach. And after a Herculean task and with the support of expert swimmers, the youth were rescued at around 1 a.m. on Monday.
