The Initial Response Team (IRT) was tasked to assist Rescue 106, the Coastguard Helicopter, based in Portland. A lady, in her mid thirties, had fallen and sustained a suspected broken leg. The accident had happened below Black Venn, to the east of Lyme Regis in the ‘surf’ line of the incoming tide. The helicopter lowered the winch-man paramedic to the beach. The casualty was placed in a stretcher and ‘medevacced’ to Dorset County hospital at Dorchester.
