Two searches and a dislocated shoulder

A busy 48 hours for the team starting with a search on Wednesday evening at Studland for a concern of a female reported walking into the sea.

Joined by colleagues from the RNLI in Swanage, the team searched the beach whilst the two Lifeboats searched the training bank.

After searching for over an hour no one was located after reports the female was seen getting the chain ferry back to Sandbanks.

On Thursday afternoon the team were tasked to assist the Ambulance service under the Pines hotel with a 17 year old student who had dislocated their shoulder. Due to the location the team requested assistance from the Swanage RNLI inshore lifeboat to transport the casualty to a better location to meet the ambulance.

The team were again tasked around 8pm to a report of a female walking into the sea at Studland. The Coastguard were joined in the search by both Poole Lifeboats , Dorset Police and the Coastguard helicopter. The description of the lady matched the lady from the previous night but no one had seen her come back out or get back on the ferry. Search assets searched from the chain ferry to South beach for nearly 3 hours before the lady was located safe and well returning on the chain ferry by one of the Coastguard teams.
