Criccieth RNLI Lifeboats save walker and dog
At 8.30am on Friday the 28th of September 2018, volunteers from Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat Station were called to rescue a walker and his dog cut off by an incoming tide at Black Rock Sands
Once on-scene, the volunteer crew placed the walker aboard the Lifeboat, along with his dog, and transferred both ashore safely. The area around the casualty had quickly become marooned by an incoming spring tide whilst deep, fast flowing channels had developed between the walker and the shore line.
This rescue represented the 10th life saved by Criccieth’s RNLI Station this year.
