Peter Lilley, a captain with the TVLB whose team worked on the shore to spot the teenager, said: "She was unconscious and not breathing when she was found in the water and CPR was started straight away."
Peter Lilley, TVLB, said: "As the local coastal search and rescue team we spend a lot of time along our coastline - whether that be training, on safety patrols, or attending callouts - of which we receive around 120 a year.
The TVLB crew managed to find the youngster and safely led her to the lifeboat, which then took her ashore.
The call-out was one of four made to the TVLB within 17 hours across Friday night and Saturday morning.
Although the vehicle was above the high-water mark, TVLB members agreed to assist the driver and were able to move the car to the access ramp at the south end of the beach.
