DetailsTenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 6.30pm on Tuesday 6th August, following a report that someone had fallen and injured themselves on the beach at Amroth.

As the tide was coming in fast and threatening to surround the casualty, the lifeboat was tasked to assist in moving the casualty should the need arise before the Coastguard Rescue helicopter arrived.

Once on scene, the volunteer crew assisted Paramedics and members of Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team in transporting the casualty to the helicopter to be flown to hospital.

Once complete, all units stood down and returned to station.
