The D-class was out on exercise with an assessor and was at the West end of Hayling Bay when it was asked to go into Langstone Harbour to a position in Locks Lake off the Thatched House Pub . A lady was in the water and thought to be suicidal. The Portsmouth Lifeboat was also being launched. The Portsmouth Lifeboat reached the scene first and immediately asked for assistance in recovering the person from the water as she was not breathing. One of the Hayling crew went into the water and gave first aid assistance with Portsmotuh to the casualty succeeding in in opening her airway. She began breathing again but she was drifiting in and out of consciousness and so the two crews took her the short distance to the shore where an ambulance was waiting.

The Hayling Lifeboat then returned to the assessment but was diverted to another incident………..(See above)
