Rescue – 10 January 2016

The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat was tasked in the early hours of Sunday 10 January 2016 after a person entered the sea at Redcar near to the Park Hotel on the Esplanade.

The police contacted UK Coastguard who then paged the lifeboat crew at 3.26am.

As the crew was assembling the coastguards were informed that police officers on scene had recovered the person from the sea and the lifeboat launch was cancelled.

The person was taken to hospital by ambulance.
