Two incidents on busy afternoon for Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch shortly after 1pm on Tuesday 25th July following a report that somebody had fainted in the sea at Telpyn beach.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and headed to the scene some six miles north-east of the station.

Once at Telpyn, the volunteer crew soon spotted the casualty who was now being assessed by a paramedic. A crew member was put ashore to offer assistance. Tenby Coastguard team arrived shortly afterwards.

Whilst this was going on, another incident was unfolding at Pendine, after a young child was reported missing on the beach. As the situation at Telpyn was under control, and with nothing more the lifeboat could do, Milford Haven Coastguard requested that the lifeboat head to Pendine to assist RNLI beach lifeguards in the search.

As the lifeboat was approaching Pendine, news came through that the child had fortunately been found by the lifeguards so the lifeboat was stood down to return to station, arriving at 2.35pm
