Tenby RNLI’s crew had a late night call-out last night to tend to an injured yachtsman.
The relief all-weather lifeboat launched shortly before 10.30 pm on Monday, August 21, after the Coastguard received a call from a yachtsman in Tenby's North bay, stating he'd fallen and possibly broken his leg.
The lifeboat was on scene in minutes and transferred crew aboard the yacht to assess the casualty and provide pain relief.
Whilst the casualty was being cared for, the lifeboat returned to station to collect Paramedics, before returning and dropping them off with the casualty.
The casualty was soon ready for transport and was returned to station aboard the lifeboat, before being taken to hospital for treatment.
