Callout 430

Posted on Tuesday May 5, 2009

Four people were seen in water west of Rams Island after their canoes capsized. The crew were paged at 13.00 and KILB and AILB were launched. They arrived on scene to find that the casualties had been picked up by a sand barge. The lifeboats then escorted the barge to Sandy Bay. An ambulance had to be called to treat one of the casualties who was suffering from severe hypothemia. KILB and AILB were back on station at 15.00.
