Date.16/09/2012          Berwick Report No. HB58

Two extremely lucky local men plucked to safety from sea by Berwick RNLI.

Two extremely lucky local men plucked to safety from sea by Berwick RNLI.
HM Coastguard received the call from Berwick Holiday Centre Security, saying
that a holiday owner had spotted, what looked like a small fishing boat and
crew in difficulties off Sharpers Head at 5.26pm on Sunday 16th September.
Both Berwick lifeboats were launched and on arrival at the scene it turned out to be a
capsized broken down dingy, with two casualties in the water.

The casualties’ were plucked from the freezing water where it appeared they had
been in for over half an hour and brought on board the all-weather lifeboat, while
the crew of the inshore lifeboat retrieved the dingy. Both boats returned to Berwick
lifeboat station at Carr Rock.

Awaiting Northumbria Ambulance Paramedics attended to the casualties’ and the
dingy brought ashore.

HM Coastguard Station Officer Philip Davidson said, ‘I can’t emphasize enough the
importance of taking the correct safety equipment when going out to sea’.
Divisional Sea Safety Manager for Scotland Michael Avril for the RNLI said, ‘If you always follow
the six correct ‘C’s’ when going to sea, which are, choose and wear the correct
lifejacket, check your engine and fuel level, carry some means to call for help,
check the weather and tide conditions, call and tell someone where you are going
and when you will be back and finally get the correct appropriate training before you
go out into the water, this may one day save your life.’

Both these men have been extremely lucky if they had not been spotted then the
outcome may have been entirely a different story.
