The volunteer lifeboat crew were tasked to launch their all-weather lifeboat at 10.11pm to provide medical assistance and evacuation to a female student who received an injury after a fall.
Once on scene, three of the volunteer crew went ashore and were brought by minibus to the casualty. There they administered care before transferring the injured girl back to the all-weather lifeboat.
The lifeboat then returned to Baltimore lifeboat station at 11.40pm and handed the casualty over to the care of waiting HSE ambulance crew.
Conditions at sea during the shout were calm with a westerly Force 3-4 wind and one-metre sea swell.
Speaking following the callout, Baltimore RNLI volunteer lifeboat press officer Kate Callanan said: “The lifeboat is often called upon to act as an ambulance service between the islands and mainland, and our volunteer crews are trained to a high standard in first aid and casualty care.
“If you find yourself at sea or on an island in need of medical assistance, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard. We wish [the casualty] a full and speedy recovery.”
The crew on this callout comprised coxswain Kieran Cotter, mechanic Brian McSweeney and crew members Jerry Smith, Pat Collins, Diarmuid Collins, Jim Griffiths and Ryan O’Mahony.
Micheal Cottrell, Rianne Smith, Eoin Ryan, Sean McCarthy, Don O’Donovan and David Ryan provided shore crew assistance at the lifeboat house.
