Wife of knee surgeon 'watched in horror as he and two others drowned while trying to save children in trouble due to big waves' on Cornish beach with no lifeguard

Father-of-four Stuart Calder, 52, died along with two other brave adults who ran into the sea to help the group of boys who were struggling in the waves. His horrified wife is said to have looked on helplessly from the shore as he was dragged away by the current. This photo of Mr Calder smiling with his wife and four children merged as the RNLI came under criticism for failing to have lifeguards on Mawgan Porth beach (inset) in Cornwall on Sunday afternoon, with one surfer calling it an 'avoidable tragedy'.
