Lifeboats Launched to Rescue Person Trapped On Cliff

At 1415 on 19th May 2020, Guernsey Coastguard received a call from a person trapped on the cliff at Jerbourg Point. Before full details of the exact position could be established, communication was lost. St Peter Port All Weather Lifeboat (ALB) and Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) were launched and proceeded to the scene in order to locate the casualty whilst Police officers began searching from the cliff path.

At 1453 St Peter Port ILB spotted the casualty waving from the area below one of the German bunkers at Jerbourg Point. A crew member was landed ashore and was able to reach the casualty and escort her back to the cliff path where she was treated for minor injuries by paramedics.

Both lifeboats arrived safely back in St Peter Port at 1520.
