Date/Time: 11/05/2013 14:20 - 16:20

Called to Cramond for a Person Stranded

People Assisted: 4

The lifeboat was launched after four people became stranded on Cramond Island by the incoming tide.

Due to the strong winds the lifeboat 'veered down' on the windward side of the island to recover the casualties to the lifeboat in the safest manner possible.

The four casualties were taken to Cramond harbour where they were met by the Queensferry Coastguard Rescue team.
