On 23rd August, on a very hot day, on Runswick Bay beach, RBRB Crew received a pager call to deliver the charity’s defibrilator to a suspected heart attack patient on the beach. Runswick Rescue launching authority notified Humber Coastguard and initiated the Coastguard response. Coastguard teams from Staithes and Skinningrove attended along with Helimed 99 which was already in the area. We are pleased to report that the casualty made a full recovery.
We were honoured and proud to be asked again to take part in the display at the recent Whitby RNLI Lifeboat fundraising weekend. Congratulations to the Whitby crew for a fantastic fundraiser and thank you for everything you do to promote and support auxiliary services like RBRB in the regional community.
On the hottest day of the year so far RBRB was called upon to rescue a couple and their dog who were in difficulty on a walk from Sandsend to Runswick Bay. Fortunately both Jack, the Labrador, and his owners were later discharged after suffering heat stroke and dehydration. We were more than happy to help.
