Rhyl RNLI bring sick person to shore
The volunteers of Rhyl's RNLI lifeboat crew were paged at 3.32pm on Monday 4 June after a local charter fishing boat radioed Holyhead Coastguard that he had a sick person on board.
On shore, other family members had arrived to take the casualties back to their holiday camp.
