DetailsTenby’s all-weather lifeboat launched at 7.05pm on Friday 27th August, following a request from an off-duty nurse that was assisting RNLI beach lifeguards and Tenby Coastguards in treating a person with a suspected broken leg on Coppet Hall beach.

The volunteer crew were soon on scene and launched the Y-boat with medical kit and went into the shore to where the casualty was located. They assisted by providing pain relief until the casualty was more comfortable.

Once it was confirmed that an ambulance had been tasked, the Y-boat returned to the Haydn Miller for the short trip back to Tenby, arriving at 8pm.
