St Peter Port Lifeboat Launched to Assist a Pregnant Lady on Herm

In the early hours of Sunday 16th October, 2016, the St Peter Port Lifeboat was launched to assist a pregnant lady, staying on Herm

Initially St Johns Ambulance and Rescue’s “Flying Christine III” was tasked but, due to weather and the state of tide, was unable to conduct a safe patient transfer. St Peter Port Lifeboat proceeded to Herm’s Rosaire Steps, with paramedics and a midwife on board, where a successful patient transfer was conducted using the Lifeboat’s rescue craft, the “Y” – Boat.

On arrival back in St Peter Port the lady was transferred to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital by Ambulance.
