It is Lifeboat week in Lyme Regis; a week dedicated to raising funds for the invaluable work carried out by the local RNLI. The coastguard team was asked to demonstrate of a typical mud rescue. As the team was at its station preparing for the ‘show’, a fifteen year old male walking past with his family banged his head into a road sign, gashing his head open. Two members of the coastguard team applied first aid until the ambulance arrived. The ‘casualty’ was taken to Bridport hospital to have the head wound ‘glued’. Thank you to mum for the chocolates – they disappeared very quickly after the next ‘shout’!
On Thursday 26 July 2012 at 1730, the coastguard team will be carrying out a rope rescue demonstration from the gardens in Lyme Regis.
