Both boats launch for medical evacuation from Caldey Island . . . .

Both lifeboats launched at approx. 8.15pm on Monday 7th September with Paramedics aboard after the Ambulance Service received a call stating that a diabetic man was feeling unwell on Caldey Island and needed medical attention. The boats arrived on scene and due to the low tide, the inshore lifeboat went into jetty to retrieve the casualty. He was then brought aboard the all weather lifeboat and taken into the care of the awaiting Paramedics. The boats then returned to station and the casualty was taken to hospital for treatment.
