DetailsTenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly before 8pm on Wednesday 24th July, following a report of a person having been taken ill on Caldey Island.

As soon as the Paramedics arrived, the lifeboat headed for Caldey with three members of Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team also aboard in case extra help was needed carrying the patient to the jetty.

Once alongside, a member of Caldey Coastguard Team took the Paramedics up to the Abbey, where the patient was located, where they treated him and got him ready for the trip back down to the lifeboat.

With the patient safely aboard, the lifeboat headed back to station, where he was then transported to hospital via ambulance for further treatment.
