Byline: Ramsgate RNLI’s inshore lifeboat launched at 8.43pm on Thursday, 4th. July following a report of a person in difficulty offshore.
Page Content: The inshore lifeboat started a search and at 9.00pm requested the assistance of the all weather lifeboat as it was beginning to get dark. However, before the all weather lifeboat arrived on scene the inshore crew found the casualty ¼ mile off from the beach and quickly got her on board.

The RNLI inshore lifeboat immediately brought the casualty to the boathouse, where one of our crew, who is a paramedic, carried out an assessment and found the casualty’s temperature to be only 30 degrees. The casualty was looked after by our paramedic crew member until the ambulance service arrived to take her to hospital.
