On Thursday 26 November, Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat Robina Nixon Chard launched just before 11am to assist in a medical evacuation alongside Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team and Ambulance paramedics.
An individual had fallen on rocks at Toll Point on the Helford River and was believed to have suffered a dislocated shoulder. Once on scene, two casualty care trained lifeboat crew were put ashore to help assess and provide treatment.
Once the Coastguard team and paramedics arrived on scene the casualty was given additional pain relief before being transferred to the Inshore Lifeboat on a stretcher. Accompanied by a paramedic, they were then taken to Durgan beach and transferred to a waiting ambulance.
The Inshore Lifeboat was released to return to the station, recovered onto its slipway at 1:18pm where it was refuelled and made ready for service.
