Byline: Both of Rhyl’s lifeboats involved in 2 separate incidents.

The first shout was at 11.08am, and involved the all-weather lifeboat launching for a medical evacuation from an accommodation vessel for the windfarms, 5 miles off Rhyl. A helicopter from RAF valley was in the area and was also tasked. Both units arrived on scene at the same time, so the lifeboat stood off until the winchman was lowered from the helicopter on to the vessel. The casualty was assessed as being OK to be airlifted, so the lifeboat again stood by until this was completed, and the casualty was on his way to Rhyl hospital in the helicopter. The lifeboat was then released and returned to station at 1.30pm. (main picture).

The second call was for the inshore lifeboat to be launched to assist the council beach lifeguards, as one of their team swam out to 2 children in an inflatable dinghy, which was being swept out to sea with the offshore breeze and ebbing tide. The lifeboat was launched and was on scene in 2 minutes. All were taken on board the lifeboat, and returned safe and well. (picture 2 )
