Shout Number 24/2013

Date/Time: 23/07/2013 22:07 - 22:55

Called to Pettycur Bay for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 2

The lifeboat was called in the middle of a lightning storm to look for a person flashing a torch in the water at Pettycur. A shoreline search was conducted from Pettycur Harbour to the Black Rock, where two people were found with a torch. They were ankle deep in water and fishing for razor clams at low tide. After the informant was found and verified that the lights were the ones he saw, the lifeboat crew returned to station.
