Two teenagers were rescued by a helicopter on Friday after they were trapped in between rocks at an Ayia Napa beach, police said.

Shortly after 5pm, officers were informed that two boys, aged 14 and 15 were trapped at the beach close to the Marina Hotel due to rough seas at the time and the topography of the area.

The fire services arrived at the scene but were unable to reach them and the joint rescue coordination centre (JRCC) was notified, dispatching a police helicopter that managed to rescue the two shortly after 6:30pm.

According to police, both boys are well but were taken as a precaution to the Famagusta general hospital for checks.

The JRCC called on the public to avoid going to the sea via the rocks particularly when there are difficult weather conditions, and to respect safety rules.
