    Sick Penrith woman 'dropped' in 'ice cold' sea

    A seriously ill Cumbrian woman was dropped into near-freezing sea waters from a cruise ship as paramedics tried to transfer her to a waiting vessel.

    Grandmother Janet Richardson, 73, was on a cruise along the coast of Norway when she became ill.

    After being treated onboard, local paramedics were called. As they tried to transfer her to the lifeboat she fell into the sea.

    She is currently being treated at Carlisle's Cumberland Infirmary.

    It is believed Mrs Richardson was submerged in near-freezing temperatures for several minutes before she was rescued.

    Nothing like a -3 degree F saltwater bath to cool down a fever.
