The IRT was tasked to assist a nine-year old boy who had a fish-hook through his cheek. The boy had walked behind a family member who was fishing off the North Wall at Lyme Regis and unfortunately ‘caught’ the young visitor. Together with a paramedic from South West Ambulance, the barb of the hook was cut off and the rest of the hook removed slowly from the wound. The boy was able to return to his grandmother’s home straight away after his ordeal.
