#22 Person in Trouble

 06/07/2019 Clacton RNLI’s volunteers respond to reports of a person in trouble at Clacton Pier The volunteers of Clacton RNLI responded to a launch request from UK Coastguard, that a person was in difficulty near to Clacton Pier. At 11.45am July 6, by request of UK Coastguard the D class inshore lifeboat, Arthur Hamilton, was launched after reports had been received of someone in difficulty near to the town’s pier On arrival at the pier, the two volunteer crew members spotted that the Clacton Beach Patrol jet ski was there with two males on the old lifeboat slipway. After checking on their welfare the crew were tasked to check around and under the pier to be certain there was no one else in need of assistance. Once these checks had been made, the crew were released to return to station by UK Coastguard. The lifeboat was recovered and ready for service again by 12.40pm. Anyone venturing into the sea is urged to be careful, and if they get into difficulty, remember to; ‘Give Yourself a Floating Chance’ 1. Fight your instincts to thrash around 2. Lean back, extend your arms and legs 3. If you need to, gentle move your arms and legs to help you float 4. Float until you can control your breathing 5. Only then call for help or try to swim to safety Boat: D Class (D774)
