The Seaking helicopter from RAF Valley, Anglesey, was also tasked. Both rescue units arrived at the accomodation vessel at the same time. The lifeboat therefore stood off as the helicopter lowered the winchman on to the vessel’s rear deck.

The unwell worker was assessed by an on-site emergency response team and the helicopter winchman, and it was agreed the person could be winched on to the helicopter and transferred to hospital at Bodelwyddan, near Rhyl.

The lifeboat crew again stood by as the winching was successfully completed, and were then released to return to station, returning at 11.30am.
