A “Pan Pan” radio call to Valentia Coast Guard resulted in the Crosshaven Lifeboat being tasked to a medical emergency on board a Yacht.
At 1.30pm on Sunday afternoon, the volunteer crew of Crosshaven RNLI had their pagers activated and informed that an adult Male was suffering chest pains on board a yacht, South of Roches Point.
The lifeboat with volunteers, Con Crowley, Aidan O’Connor and Alan Venner made their way towards the casualty boats position and rendezvous with a yacht club RIB which now had the casualty on board. The crew administered oxygen therapy whilst on route back to the lifeboat station where the Lifeboat Station Doctor, John Murphy was waiting.
After an assessment by the Doctor in the lifeboat station, the casualty was removed by ambulance to hospital.
Crosshaven Coast Guard personnel, also assisted at the lifeboat station
