Person 'Cut Off By Tide' Rescued

Guernsey's Inshore Lifeboat makes Good Friday rescue.

On Good Friday morning, Guernsey Coastguard was alerted to a person cut off by the tide on a rocky outcrop opposite the Halfway, Belgreve Bay.

While initial investigations determined that the man was fishing, latter reports suggested that he might require some assistance.

At 1026 St Peter Port Inshore Lifeboat was launched to conduct a welfare check on the man and to render assistance if required. The Inshore Lifeboat was on scene 4 minutes later and after putting crewmen onto the rock to assess the situation, the casualty was recovered to the boat. Good conditions allowed the Lifeboat to land the casualty safely ashore on the shingle beach.

A spokesman from Guernsey Coastguard said, “While people can continue to access the coast during their 2 hours of permitted exercise, they are strongly advised to check tide times and not to stray into areas which might put themselves or others in danger”.
