This is the dramatic moment two teenage tombstoners were saved from drowning after they were swept 250 yards out to sea.<br />
<br />
Archie Woollacott, 14, got dragged away by a strong current after plunging off a harbour wall at Axmouth, Devon. His friend Bozhidrar Bobev jumped in to rescue him but was also taken out to sea.<br />
<br />
The stricken pair spent an hour treading water before they were spotted by the Lyme Regis lifeboat crew in the nick of time.<br />
<br />
The next day Archie visited to RNLI station to thank the crew by baking them a lemon drizzle cake.
