Called to Burntisland for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 1

The lifeboat was launched to a report of a dog in the water at Burntisland harbour, within the East Dock, with the owner unable to recover it and intending to enter the water.

The volunteer crew arrived on scene to find the casualty on a ladder between a barge and the harbour wall with the dog in the water beneath.

The lifeboat crew recovered the dog and its owner onto the barge and then onto the lifeboat where they were landed ashore to awaiting Coastguard and Ambulance personnel.

The lifeboat then returned to station.
