In the early hours of this morning (16th May, 2013), Hoylake lifeboatâ€™s volunteer crew was tasked to a 94m wind farm survey vessel, 8.5 miles from station to evacuate one of its crew, suffering from severe chest pains and breathing difficulties. The casualty was transferred to the lifeboat and was landed back at station and transferred him to the awaiting ambulance.
Here’s a short video that captures some of the ‘shout’:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q69ElrD0k04
Many thanks to crew member Ian Davies for the information about this RNLI shout.
Pity video has been removed- any reason?
oh so it has. I don’t know why that is – perhaps the poor chap who was unwell didn’t want others to see?
