Tenby inshore lifeboat assists when boy goes missing after going for a swim . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch just before 6pm on 23rd August after a 9yr old boy who was staying in a caravan in Kiln Park told his parents he was going for a swim.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and began a search from St Catherine’s Island up towards Giltar Pool. Several people who were spotted on the shoreline during the search were approached by the volunteer crew, but none had seen a young boy near the water’s edge.

Some ten minutes after beginning the search, news came through via Dyfed Powys Police that the young boy had fortunately been found at the swimming pool in Kiln Park.

The lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 6.15pm.
