DetailsTenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 2.10pm on Thursday 15th August, following a report that a person had fallen and suffered a suspected fractured arm on Caldey Island.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and within minutes, was alongside at Caldey. Several crew members then made their way up to where the casualty was located.

After assessing the casualty, the volunteer crew members decided to immobilise her arm and gave her Entonox pain relief gas to make her as comfortable as possible for the journey down to the jetty and back to Tenby.

Once aboard the lifeboat, she was returned to the station at Tenby and with all ambulances tasked elsewhere, was driven to Tenby Minor Injuries to be treated.
