Rescuers spent three hours freeing a man who had fallen below deck on a boat in the Port of Workington.
The crewman suffered suspected back injuries and the fire service worked alongside the coastguard, Workington lifeboat teams, and the North West Ambulance service to get the man to hospital.
He was taken to hospital by HM Coastguard in the Prestwick SAR Flight Rescue 199.
