Boat Boats Launched 24/11/2018

Both Poole lifeboats were requested to launch by UK Coastguard (Saturday November 24) just after 7pm to a report of a person in the water, on the Hamworthy side of the Twin Sails Bridge, there was a south westerly strong breeze and it was raining, as it had been all day.
The lifeboats were soon on scene and found that the person had been recovered from the water by the Police, who were on scene.
The lifeboat volunteers helped to administer first aid, immobilised the person onto a stretcher and carried her to the ambulance standing by on the Hamworthy side and the casualty was taken to hospital.
The lifeboats returned back to station and were ready for service at 7.45pm
