Tenby inshore lifeboat rescues 71 year old cut off by tide . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat launched shortly before 7pm on Tues 28 September after Milford Haven Coastguard received a report from a 71 year old gentleman reporting that he was cut off by the tide somewhere in the Wiseman’s Bridge area.

He also reported that he had tried to climb the rocks above him to get to safety but that he’d been forced to climb back down due to the brambles being too thick.

The lifeboat was soon on the water and the volunteer crew found the casualty on rocks near Wiseman’s Bridge. He was taken aboard and found to be suffering from minor cuts due to the brambles but was otherwise fine. He was taken to Saundersfoot harbour and handed over to Tenby Coastguard Team who were waiting for him. The lifeboat then returned to station.
