Coastguard Callout

A pleasant and otherwise unremarkable stroll in a sleepy corner of the South Coast was briefly interrupted by the arrival of the Lee-on-Solent Coastguard Helicopter. Landing on a narrow strip of tidal beach, the helicopter picked up a stricken walker in order to gently lift them to the top of the cliffs and a waiting ambulance.

The whole process was smooth, slick and well executed. Hopefully their passenger/patient is both grateful and none the worse for wear.
