Tenby lifeboats rescue two people from water
Tenby’s new inshore lifeboat Kathleen Ann performed its first rescue on Sunday 7th November alongside the Haydn Miller, after Milford Haven Coastguard received information that a small dinghy had capsized near Monkstone Point, with the occupants in the water, unable to right the vessel.
Once back on the slipway, the casualties were transferred into the care of the waiting Ambulance crew, before being taken to hospital to be checked over.
