Thanks to George for this latest report from Cowes RNLI. Ed
The report of an injured woman aboard a motorboat in the River Medina led to the launching of Cowes RNLI lifeboat yesterday afternoon (Sunday).
The woman, with her husband aboard the 30 foot motorboat Seajay on a mooring off The Folly, was said to have banged her head when she fell over and was feeling unwell.
The lifeboat took the woman to the Folly Pontoon where Newport coastguards helped to transfer the woman to an ambulance which took her on to St Mary’s Hospital.
The lifeboat, which had launched at 3.50am, returned to station an hour later.
On Saturday Cowes lifeboat joined Lymington’s RNLI lifeboat and the Solent Coastguard helicopter to search the Newtown area after an empty three metre inflatable dinghy with its outboard still down was found drifting in the area.
The search was eventually called off when nothing more was found.
Time called out changed from 3.50pm to 3.50am
