‘It sounded like seagulls, but it was people in the water, screaming for help’

Episode 73 – Searching Blind: Ben James

How do you search for someone in the middle of the sea in the middle of the night? We asked Tenby lifeboat crew member, Ben James.

Research has shown that when one of our senses is compromised, others become more heightened. Tenby crew member Ben James talks about the challenges of finding someone at night, and about how the kit that crews rely on includes eyes and ears adjusting to the inky blackness.
