RNLI Fraserburgh Tasked to Man in Water
Fraserburgh Lifeboat was launched 16 September 2019 at 18.20 after the Coastguard had received reports of a person in the water at Buchanhaven.
Coxswain Vic Sutherland, Kenneth Ritchie, Stephen Brown, Jason Flett, John May, William McDonald, and Martyn Runcie, had responded immediately to their pagers and were aboard the lifeboat as it sped to the scene.
They were passing Rattray Head when they got the good news that the person had made their way out of the water and was in a safe area.
The lifeboat was being stood down and could return to Fraserburgh
Fraserburgh Lifeboat returned to station, and was washed down and refuelled and made ready for the next service.
A good outcome with the person safe and well.
Members of the public are reminded that if they see anyone in danger at sea to phone the Coastguard immediately on 999.
