Dunbar’s inshore lifeboat (ILB) launched Sunday afternoon, 9th June, to assist with an injured person just south of Dunbar.

A shore angler had slipped and was suffering from a suspected broken leg, the volunteers prepared their medical equipment and were making way to Skateraw just five minutes after the pagers had initially sounded. The crew were able to assist with the safe extraction of the angler, over some extremely slippery rocks.

Thankfully the angler had a means of calling for help as well as being with friends at the time of the accident. This incident offers a sharp reminder of how dangerous our coastline can be.

Remember to let someone know if you are exploring the coast alone, the time you expect to return, and always carry a means of calling for help.

Crew: Gaz Crowe, Alan Blair, Jamie Forrester, Andrzej Hajduk
