Rhyl all-weather lifeboat returns to the beach
The leisure boat was not able to sail into Rhyl harbour due to it being low tide, and so the volunteer crew launched the RNLI all-weather lifeboat to bring the sick persons back to shore. Once on board the lifeboat, they were monitored and attended to, by first-aid trained crew, until they arrived safely at the boathouse. This was completed by 3.45pm.
Coxswain Martin Jones said ' This was a straight-forward evacuation of two sick people back to shore. We always advise that anyone on a casualty vessel contacts the coastguard for advice or assistance via the VHF emergency channel or mobile phone, should anyone on board feel unwell'.
Rhyl lifeboat was ready for service at 4.10pm. No further details will be given on the owner's request.
