1432 A call was received by Guernsey Coastguard from St John Ambulance and Rescue Service advising them that they had received a call from two people that were trapped on Lihou after they had an accident with their inflatable kayak. One of the casualties had fallen in the water and was cold. As there was no vessels available to go to their assistance, and with failing light; it was decided to send the “Spirit of Guernsey” to Lihou with two St Johns Paramedics on board to treat the casualties.
