Atlantic 85 Launched

At 09.00 the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was tasked to a medical evacuation to assist an elderly lady who had fell from the footpath onto the rocks.
The lady had been out for a walk when she had fallen onto the rocks by East Dorset Sailing Club. Passing walkers saw her lying on the water’s edge and raised the alarm.
The lifeboat crew arrived on scene and administered first aid, the casualty was very cold but conscious, an ambulance was also on scene.
The crew worked alongside the ambulance crew immobilizing the patient, moving her onto a spine board and then a smooth transfer from the rocks into the ambulance and then she was taken to hospital.
The lifeboat crew returned back to the station and the lifeboat was ready for service by 10am
