Coastguard called to Old Harry Rocks

The team were tasked this morning to a report of a female calling for help at Old Harry Rocks.

The National Maritime Operations Centre also tasked both Swanage RNLI Lifeboats , St Albans Coastguard Team , Dorset Police and Rescue 104 from Lee on Solent.

On arrival a female was located at the base of the cliff by the lifeboat crews who quickly got the casualty out of the water and into the safety of the lifeboat.

First Aid was given until the arrival of R104 who lowered their paramedic winchman.

The female was winched back to the aircraft and flown to Southampton Hospital for treatment including the effects of the cold.

It is believed the female slipped near the cliff edge and fell about 90ft. In the current weather condition we would remind readers to stay away from cliff edges.
