The Isle of Man Coastguard and RNLI were called out last night to rescue a missing person from a cliff edge.
RNLI Douglas located the person at around 11:47pm on the foot of cliffs on the Marine Drive in Douglas.
The lifeboat Sir William Hillary left Douglas Harbour around to the cliffs below the Toll Gate to primarily assist the Coastguard by using the lifeboat's search lights to illuminate the scene - a dingy was also used by RNLI volunteers.
With the casualty safely back on the Marine Drive, the dinghy and its crew along with the Coastguard returned to the lifeboat, which then made its way back to Douglas.
Volunteers from the Isle of Man's Douglas RNLI assisted in a multi-agency call to recover an unconscious male from a beach.
Coastguards and paramedics had secured the casualty on a back board and stretcher on Port Skillion Beach just outside Douglas Harbour. Access to the beach is only via flights of steep steps at either end of the beach so the lifeboat was requested to evacuate the casualty from offshore.
Deputy Second Coswain Tony Radcliffe took the all-weather lifeboat, Sir William Hillary, as close to the beach as the depth of water would allow then volunteer crew members Lavinia Washington and James Bettridge used the lifeboat’s daughter boat, an inflatable dinghy, to go ashore to recover the casualty to the lifeboat.
With the casualty safely transferred to the lifeboat, the dinghy and its crew also recovered, the lifeboat returned to Douglas, to the Liner Berth where the Coastguard and paramedics were waiting to transfer the casualty to an ambulance to be taken to Nobles Hospital.
The efficient way the crew handled themselves this morning is evidence of the regular training given by the RNLI, and in particular Lavinia who recently passed her Casulaty Care assessment and took a place in the dinghy.
