FLOATS: Will help save lives

THREE beaches in Marbella will receive mechanised orange floats to save lives all year round.

Known as, punto naranjas, their bright highly visible colour consists of a harness linked to a rescue float in the sea with a 400 metre long cable.

The device will enable those in distress to clip onto the cable to then be winched onto the float if they are in danger.

The device also means that if there is no lifeguard on duty, there is still an emergency response as once connected to the float an automatic call is sent out to emergency services for the person to be rescued.

They will be installed on La Venus, Cabopino and San Pedro beaches in 2018.
