RNLB Rose Launches to Assist Casualty Stranded on Rocks
Our crew were paged at 4.48pm to reports of a single casualty and his dog cut off by the tide near Polbarrow Cove, just off Cadgwith Cove.
RNLB Rose launched on service at 4.55pm and arrived on scene two minutes later. The casualty had been immediately visualised and was safely transferred from his position on the rocks to the lifeboat via the smaller Y-boat.
Once ensuring that both the casualty and his dog were not in need of any medical assistance, both were taken in to Cadgwith Cove to the awaiting Porthoustock and Mullion Coastguards. RNLB Rose arrived back at her station at 5.22pm where she was rehoused and made ready for service when required at 5.35pm.
