St Peter Port Lifeboats Launched to a Casualty at Le Jaonnet Bay

At 16:52 on Saturday 11th September 2021, Guernsey Coastguard was alerted to a person in difficulty who had fallen from the ladder at Le Jaonnet Bay onto rocks.

Paramedics attended the scene and reported the casualty had been injured during the fall and was unable to climb back up the ladder.

St Peter Port Inshore Lifeboat “Elizabeth and Margaret Milligan” and All-Weather Lifeboat “Spirit of Guernsey” were requested to assist and were launched on service at 17:31.

In the meantime, Paramedics assisted and comforted the casualty until the Inshore Lifeboat attended the scene, and was able to safely retrieve the casualty from the bay, before being transferred onto the All-Weather Lifeboat which then proceeded back to St Peter Port.

On return to St Peter Port Harbour, the casualty was placed in the care of St Johns Paramedics.

The Lifeboats were both back on station at 18:36.
