Poole lifeboat and rescue helicopter launched to medical evacuation
A 26 ft. yacht with three people on-board was heading back towards Poole when one of the people became poorly and taken ill.

The lifeboat met the vessel in Poole Bay and transferred a crewman across to assess the casualty, who had initially been unconscious, but had since come round, the Coastguard had also tasked Rescue Helicopter 106 who also arrived on scene.

With a crew member on-board the lifeboat left the yacht, to rendezvous with the helicopter, where the winchman was transferred on-board the lifeboat. Meanwhile, the yacht had continued on its way into Poole Harbour heading to Poole Quay where an ambulance had been requested to stand by.

The lifeboat conveyed the winchman onto the yacht and first aid was administered.

The yacht went alongside at Poole Quay Boat Haven and with assistance from the Poole mobile Coastguards the casualty was transferred to the care of the waiting ambulance.

The lifeboat then took the winchman out to the harbour where he was safely transferred to the helicopter standing by.

The lifeboat crew returned back to station and the lifeboat was ready for service by 19.45pm

Poole Lifeboat volunteer Dave Riley said;

‘This service demonstrated great multi agency working between all assets, lifeboats, Coastguard helicopter, paramedics and mobile coastguard, we all wish the lady a speedy recovery’.
