Both boats launched for Trearddur Bay RNLI
At 7:30pm last night, Tuesday 8th May, the volunteers of Trearddur bay were paged by HM Coastguard. The crew were requested to assist a suspected casualty in the water at Rhosneigr.
Upon arrival the RNLI Volunteers were informed that three men had entered the water and one had got into difficulty. Paramedics from the Welsh Ambulance Service also attended the incident and the casualty was airlifted to hospital.
Both boats returned to the station at 9:30pm.
Key facts about the RNLI
