A party of 4 adults, unfamiliar with the area, had gone for a walk around the Mill Pond at Stoke Gabriel and become disorientated in the dark. Two of the lifeboat crew went ashore with a searchlight and were able to guide the party across the shoreline to a pathway where they were met by the Coast Guard cliff rescue team.
