Children in trouble

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 8 June

Launched at : 13:50

Returned at : 14:30

Weather : Fine and sunny with a F4 NW wind

The Atlantic was called out to a lad in a small inflatable dinghy rapidly being blown off the shore at W Wittering but before we reached him he had been helped back by other boats around. We were then alerted however to a missing 4 year old who had been close to the sea at groyne 17 at W Wittering. The Atlantic began a search but happily the child was found on the beach and so the lifeboat returned to the station.
