RNLI Moelfre Tasked to Assist Casualty with Serious Leg Injury
At 5:10 pm 05/02/2024, the all-weather lifeboat ‘Kiwi’ launched after being tasked by H.M. Coastguard to report that a casualty had sustained a serious leg injury at Dulas estuary.
Once on scene the lifeboat crew put their casualty care training to effective use by administering pain relief by means of Entonox to the casualty, who was in severe pain after sustaining a compound fracture to the lower leg.
The casualty was then transferred by ambulance to Bangor Hospital for further specialised treatment.
All of us involved in today's shout wish the casualty a speedy recovery.
This was our first shout of 2024, and it was also the first shout for Vince after being appointed as our full-time station coxswain.
