A short write up from the Stations P&P Officer of the last shout. A VHF call was received from Falmouth Coastguard from the Brixham trawler the Anna Marie, to call for assistance at approximately 20:30 (8:30. p.m.), to report that one of the crew members was taken ill. The crew member had recently taken some “off the shelf” pain killers which had caused him to go into anaphylactic shock. The trawlers position was given as twenty miles South East of Berry Head when the call was made and with the wind gusting a force six Easterly resulted in an uncomfortable passage as the Lifeboat punched her way through the rough seas at around twenty five knots. When the Lifeboat arrived, the sea conditions made the transfer of the casualty from the trawler a little difficult, but with all precautions taken the fisherman was taken aboard the Lifeboat. The Lifeboat then made its way to Torquay harbour where the casualty was checked over by the awaiting ambulance paramedics. Once they were happy that the fisherman had recovered enough, he was able to travel back to his home port of Brixham on the Lifeboat. Pictures to follow.
