2012 Incident #18 28.05.12 1709UTC #1738

The whole Coastguard team was tasked to assist our colleagues in the West Bay team with the rescue of a paraglider who crashed into the cliffs at Eype. The 77 year old male was recovered from the cliff face by the Coastguard helicopter and taken to Dorset County Hospital with a dislocated hip.
