RNLI Dart rescue 80 year old sailor from the River Dart
An 80 year old sailor fell between his boat and a mid-river pontoon at 11pm on Saturday 23 September. His cry was heard by the Dartmouth River Taxi who threw him a life ring but could not get him out of the water. The inshore lifeboat crew got him aboard and administered First Aid and, with the help of the  Coastguard and Police, transferred him to an Ambulance for admission to Torbay Hospital.
