RAF called to aid of stricken fisherman

The RAF was called into action this weekend to help a stricken fisherman who had badly injured himself in an incident at sea.

On Saturday evening a Sea King helicopter was dispatched to the aid of the man who was working on a small trawler when he was hurt. 

A paramedic was winched down to the vessel and began treating the man as the boat made its way to Peel.

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service was then called out to help move the casualty from the boat to an ambulance which was waiting on the breakwater.

The RAF helicopter was forced to land on Peel beach to wait for the winchman – causing much interest from the public. 

There is no update available on the man's current condition or nature of his injuries.
