Both lifeboats launched after tourist collapses on Caldey Island
Tenby's lifeboats launched on their third shout of the day at 3.50pm on Tuesday 15th June following a request for assistance from the Welsh Ambulance Service after they received a 999 call stating a visitor to Caldey Island had collapsed.
A short time later, after being assessed by the Paramedics, the patient was cleared and chose to return to Tenby on one of the passenger boats.
The lifeboat then took the Paramedics and Fire fighters back aboard the lifeboat and returned to station, arriving at 5pm.
