Best dressed incident

The team were just returning from a memorial unveiling at Peveril Point, when on route to sandwiches and tea the IRT noticed an Ambulance car in the boat park.

The team stopped and checked with the Paramedic if she needed a hand and then next thing, 5 Coastguard Officers all dressed in the best uniform are on their hands and knees carrying out 1st aid. A male had fallen from his yacht whilst it was parked in the boat park and received a nasty head injury. Due to the location and a few other factors the Air Ambulance was requested and landed by the team at Peveril Point.

The male was flown to Poole Hospital for treatment and the team resumed just in time to finish the buffet.
