Man has a fall on the Emsworth Pontoon

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Wednesday 31 July

Launched at : 18:34

Returned at : 20:22

Weather : Fine but with a F4 SSW wind.

Solent Coastguard requested we launch to go to help an elderly gentleman who had fallen on the fixed pontoon in the Emsworth Channel. The Atlantic 85 was soon on the scene, gave first aid to the fallen man and  reassurance to his wife who was concerned. The man was put into a basket stretcher and both he and his wife were taken ashore at Emsworth Marina where they were met by Hayling  Coastguard and an ambulance. The Atlantic then returned to the pontoon and collected 3 other family members and took them ashore, and finally returned to the station.
