The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



This will probably be the last update on the site about our Crewman Ali, who was seriously injured on a training session in July, as he is making a miraculous recovery!

Ali has now been released from hospital and has been allowed back home. I know that there are many of you who are monitoring the site to find out about his condition, and we thank you for your concerns and the sympathy you have shown.

Although Ali still has a long way to go, he will be receiving the best of care to rehabilitate him and we continue to wish him all the best on his recovery. He has already been to the crew barbeque and astonished many of the crew with his recuperative skills.

John Caldwell, Divisional Inspector for the RNLI in Scotland said:
'We are delighted that Alistair has been allowed home. We understand from his doctors and family that he is making good progress and will continue his treatment at a specialist rehabilitation centre to help with his recovery. The welfare of our crew is of utmost importance and our thoughts are with Alistair and his family during this difficult time.'

Thank you again for all your messages of support.
