Shout Number 47/2009

Date/Time: 31/08/2009 15:30 - 16:20

Called to Kinghorn for a Medivac

People Assisted: 1

The lifeboat crew were called to assist an elderly woman who had fallen down rocks in Kinghorn Bay. Due to the proximity of the incident to the lifeboat station, and its accessibility from the shore, the crew did not launch the lifeboat but rendered assistance from the shore itself. With the aid of the local coastguard team, police and paramedics, the woman was stabilised and transferred to a waiting ambulance.
