Cornwall Air Ambulance, the Coastguard Search and Rescue helicopter, police, the ambulance service and the RNLI lifeboat all rushed to help.

He was treated for cardiac arrest on the beach with CPR but could not be revived.

The beach was closed off during the search and the man’s son is understood to physically be okay.

Devon and Cornwall Police had to use a language line to inform the family of the foreign national’s death as they do not speak English.

A force incident manager said: “His family is now aware. He was pronounced deceased at the scene and wasn’t from the area.

“He went into the water with his young son and sadly didn’t come out alive.”

The tragedy is one of several water-related incidents as Brits flocked to beaches to enjoy soaring temperatures of up to 33 degrees.

Three weeks ago a man suffered serious spinal injuries after jumping 200ft into the sea from Durdle Door, Dorset.
