Poole Lifeboat rescues windsurfers
POOLE Lifeboat was launched yesterday following reports from Portland Coastguard that someone had been heard screaming for help in the vicinity of Whitley Lake.
The volunteer crew found three people clinging to the back of a moored yacht. They had windsurfs with them.
It turned out that one of the windsurfers had gone to help the other two and when the lifeboat arrived he departed.
The two casualties were rescued and one of them was treated by paramedics on arrival at the lifeboat station.
