Coastguard Callout

Filed under: UK,Wallpaper — admin @ 4:06 pm

We had an unexpected (but welcome) guest yesterday, in an otherwise sleepy corner of the South Coast, when the Lee-on-Solent Coastguard helicopter was called out to help a member of the public. The chopper landed on a narrow strip of tidal beach, picked up a walker, then gently air-lifted them to the top of the cliffs and a waiting ambulance.

The whole process was smooth, slick and well executed. Hopefully their passenger/patient is both grateful and none the worse for wear.
