 Person In Water 

Shout Number 41/2008

Date/Time: 22/10/2008 19:00 - 19:30

Called to Burntisland for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 2

The lifeboat was called to the Burntisland area following reports of two people in the water, having fallen out of their Indian style canoe. The weather conditions were poor, and it was dark, so a rescue helicopter was also scrambled to assist in the search.

As the lifeboat arrived on scene to begin the search, local coastguards found that the two men had made it ashore. They were taken to hospital by ambulance, and the helicopter and lifeboat were stood down.
