Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboats-attend-serious-incident-involving-two-jet-skis

Byline: At 15.13pm on August 25th, 2013 volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station were tasked to a serious incident involving two jet skis in the Porthmadog channel.
Page Content: The station immediately launched both lifeboats from Criccieth following reports of the collision between two jet skis near the Powder House at the entrance to the estuary.  As the station’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Doris Joan, arrived on scene a helicopter from  Air Ambulance Wales was providing medical attention to a woman suffering from serious leg injuries and a man suffering from head injuries.  The RAF’s Seaking helicopter from RAF Valley was also tasked to the scene.
 
With the station’s inshore rescue lifeboat also on scene, both were able to transfer other emergency service personal as required and keep the public at a safe distance.  A crew member from the Atlantic lifeboat was placed ashore to assist the medical teams in stabilising the causalities.
 
After being provided with on-scene medical attention, the woman was transported to Ysbyty Gwynedd by the Air Ambulance, whilst the man was taken in the RAF helicopter to hospital.
 
Once the lifeboats had been stood-down by HM Coastguard, they began back towards Criccieth only to be tasked to two other separate incidents.  The first required the Atlantic 85 lifeboat to tow a broken-down jet ski, which had run out of fuel south of Harlech, back to Black Rock beach; whilst the second incident involved the inshore rescue boat following reports of a missing child on Black Rock sands who was found safe and well ashore.
