DetailsTenby’s inshore lifeboat was requested to launch just after 6pm on Wednesday 25th August, following a report of a person having collapsed after exiting the sea at Presipe beach near Manorbier.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the beach and upon arrival, crew members went ashore and began casualty care, assisted by Coastguards. The casualty quickly responded and once well enough, was transported the short distance around to Manorbier beach, where Coastguard teams from Tenby and St Govans were waiting. She was placed in the Coastguard vehicle to be warmed up.

A Welsh Ambulance Service First Responder was soon on scene to take over care, shortly followed by an Ambulance to take the casualty to be checked over in hospital.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 7.40pm. A great example of multiple agencies working together for the benefit of the casualty.
