Latest launch information:7th October 2021
Swanage’s D class inshore lifeboat (ILB) was requested to launch this morning to assist Swanage Coastguard at Knoll Beach. They’d been tasked to a casualty with a badly injured knee. The casualty was found to be in a lot of pain so the entonox pain reliving gas carried by the lifeboat was requested. The ILB launched with the entonox from the all weather lifeboat aboard and was soon on scene with the casualty. The entonox was administered to reduce the pain and with a long wait for an ambulance the casualty made arrangements to be collected by a family member. With the family member on their way the ambulance car became available so additional pain relief was given so the casualty could finally be moved and taken to hospital for further treatment. The ILB was then released to return to station.
