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.
