Georgina Taylor assists in evacuation of lady with suspected broken leg . . . .
Tenby’s RNLI Inshore lifeboat Georgina Taylor was tasked at 13:36 on Friday 7 of April to assist with a medical evacuation of a female who had slipped and fallen whilst walking on rocks east of Telpyn point, near Amroth.
Once on scene, the volunteer crew assessed the casualty, who was in an inaccessible position with an incoming tide. The casualty had a suspect broken femur, so as one crew member gave first aid the remaining crew took the partner of the casualty to the safety of Amroth beach and retrieved a paramedic and members of Tenby Coastguard rescue to assist with her recovery.
Due to the serious nature of the injury and the position of the casualty, along with the incoming tide, a decision was made to task Coastguard helicopter 187 to air lift the casualty and the Paramedic to hospital.
