The rescue beacon CUX-1 is located at a neuralgic point, namely on a Prick (bush) marked Priel. Before setting up this rescue beacon, there were repeated deaths at this danger point due to (drowned) Watt wanderers circled by the running water. Since the 1970s, people in distress could save on the beacon and survive so. Since the establishment of this beacon, there have been no deaths here. The cabin is accessible via a ladder and provides protection for up to 6 people - even from lightning. Even at high tide the steel cage protrudes 2 meters out of the water. In the winter months, however, the beacon is partially dismantled to protect against storms and / or ice drift - abusive use can be prosecuted ... further information (also to the other rescue beacons in the Watt near Cuxhaven) at: http: // www. baken-net.de/cux_rettungsbaken.htm
