2011 Incident #15 20.04.11 1308UTC #1303

The whole Coastguard team was tasked to assist with the medevacc of a gentlemen suffering from an expected stroke. He had flagged down an off duty coastguard and requested immediate assistance. Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance was dispatched to Lyme Regis. The team cleared a landing site on the town’s main beach whilst the casualty was prepared for his short flight to Dorchester. The fine weather meant that the beach was very busy with holiday makers. The Coastguard would like to thank all those on the beach for their consideration during this rescue.
