Tom was rescued and taken by lifeboat to the harbour, before being taken by ambulance to Torbay District Hospital with a severe head injury, spinal and leg injuries.

Tom was later taken to Derriford hospital where he sadly passed away on Saturday 20 September due to injuries sustained during the fall.
