Second early morning call for Seahouses lifeboat to assist ambulance crew
At 2.10am on Saturday 26 November 2022, the UK Coastguard requested the launch of Seahouses all-weather lifeboat, to transport an ambulance crew to Holy Island for the second time in 24 hours.
On arrival at Holy Island at 3:05am, the ambulance crew assessed the patient, and it was decided to evacuate her aboard the lifeboat.
The ambulance crew and patient were then transported by lifeboat to their vehicle at Seahouses, for the onward road journey to Cramlington Emergency Specialist Care Hospital.
