Called to Portobello for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was launched following a report of two people in the water at Portobello beach. The boat arrived on scene 11 minutes after launch, but the casualties were being recovered to the beach by local police officers, who commandeered a nearby Canadian canoe, as the lifeboat arrived at Portobello.

This was a multi agency response, with police, ambulance, fire service, Fisherrow and Queensferry Coastguard Rescue Teams, Queensferry lifeboat, and a rescue helicopter all tasked to the incident.
