Date/Time: 10/08/2016 14:42 - 14:51

Called to Kinghorn for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was launched to investigate a small vessel 200m off Kinghorn Beach as it appeared no one was on board.

The volunteer crew was soon alongside and confirmed that the sole occupant of the small fishing boat was lying down in the boat, in the sun. As no distress existed, the lifeboat returned to station.
