DetailsTenby’s lifeboats launched on their third shout of the day at 3.50pm on Tuesday 15th June following a request for assistance from the Welsh Ambulance Service after they received a 999 call stating a visitor to Caldey Island had collapsed.

The lifeboats quickly made the short journey over to the island. With the tide very low, the inshore lifeboat was used to ferry ashore two Paramedics and several lifeboat crew members, along with members of Tenby Fire Brigade in case they needed the fire equipment to transport the casualty down to the lifeboat.

A short time later, after being assessed by the Paramedics, the patient was cleared and chose to return to Tenby on one of the passenger boats.

The lifeboat then took the Paramedics and Fire fighters back aboard the lifeboat and returned to station, arriving at 5pm.
