A busy weekend for the lifeboat – 9-10 July 2016

Spirit of West Norfolk

Saturday 9th July.

At 8.55pm Humber Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton lifeboat to give assistance to a fisherman with a fish hook in his finger. The gentleman was reportedly slipping in and out of consciousness, and assistance was requested to assist in bringing him ashore to the waiting paramedics at Brancaster.

On arrival at Brancaster it was reported that the fisherman who was on an angling trip, had been landed into the care of the paramedics by the angling boat. After being checked by the ambulance crew, he declined to go to Kings Lynn Hospital, but would seek treatment at Grantham when he got home.

Hunstanton Lifeboat “Spirit of West Norfolk” returned to station at 9.50pm.

Sunday 10th July.

At 12.50pm Humber Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton Lifeboat to investigate a report of a Kite surfer in trouble about a mile to the East of the lifeboat station.

On arrival at the search area it was reported that the surfer had got ashore, but his kite was still out there. The RNLI crew recovered the kite, and brought it back to the boathouse, which was later picked up by the owner.
