Tenby’s all-weather lifeboat the Haydn Miller launched at 16:37hrs on Thurs 9th April following a report to Miford Haven Coastguard from Ambulance Control that a 14yr old girl had fallen badly on rocks at Barafundle Beach, suffering back and neck injuries.
The lifeboat was tasked to ferry the casualty around to Stackpole Quay which was the closest place the Paramedics could get the ambulance to. The boat was soon on scene and found the Paramedics already stabilising the casualty with the help of St Govans Cliff Rescue Team. The Y Boat was launched with 2 volunteer crew members and a stretcher aboard and taken into the beach.
Once the casualty had been loaded onto the stretcher, she was taken aboard the Y Boat along with a Paramedic and conveyed the short distance around the headland to Stackpole Quay where she was met by Tenby Coastguards and the ambulance. She was then taken to Hospital with a suspected broken collar bone.
