Georgina Taylor assists fisherman who fell on rocks

Lifeboats News Release

Tenby’s RNLI inshore-lifeboat Georgina Taylor launched shortly before 7.30pm on Sunday 11th June following a report to the Coastguard that a fisherman had fallen on rocks below the old lifeboat station.

The volunteer crew were quickly on scene and found the casualty on rocks just to the right of the old lifeboat station.

Two crew members were dropped ashore with the first aid kit where they treated the gentleman for a gash to his head and checked for any other injuries whilst they awaited an ambulance. Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team also attended to provide assistance if required.

Once the Paramedics arrived, they checked the gentleman over and then walked him back to the Ambulance before taking him to hospital.

The inshore lifeboat then returned to station.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen, Carrybridge and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
