Young lady rescued from water by Plymouth RNLI

Lifeboats News Release

A young lady who is believed to be in her early 20’s was rescued from the water near to the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club by Plymouth RNLI this afternoon.

Following reports that a young woman had been spotted in the water, Plymouth RNLI launched their inshore lifeboat ‘Millennium Forester’ with three crew members aboard at 3:40pm. The sea conditions were calm, and the weather had cleared up following the downpour of rain that occurred this morning.

The police launch arrived on scene first and recovered the casualty, then working together with the RNLI, they took the casualty to Millbay Marina where an ambulance was ready waiting.
