Flamborough RNLI launched to rescue 2 people cut off by the tide

Flamborough RNLI was launched on Friday morning (27 August) to reports of two people cut off by the tide at North Landing.

Flamborough lifeboat crew located the two casualties around the West Scar area of North Landing and pulled them onto the boat. The casualties, one of which had a small graze to her leg, were then transferred to the beach at North Landing where they were met by St John’s Ambulance crew. Flamborough RNLI then returned to station at South Landing.

Flamborough RNLI crew member Darren Traves, advised ‘Always check the tidetimes before you venture out along the rocks and in the caves and never judge the length of time you have left to get back to the beach by just looking at the waterline, the tide moves very quickly and it can be very deceptive.

Visit RNLI.org/RespectTheWater to learn more about how to stay safe at the beach, near open water and on the water.’
