Two tourists have been rescued from the sea at Praia Formosa.

The father and son found themselves in difficulty when taken by surprise by the waves, The son suffered a wound to his leg and nausea, and the father a cut to the head.

Municipal fire Funchal were called to the scene to help the victims.

Praia Formosa can be so dangerous on the best of days with its under currents, if the sea is really bad still I’m shocked but these last two stories of people being taken by waves.
