ILB Launched to assist teenager after cliff fall

Dunbar RNLI inshore lifeboat aided the recovery of a teenage girl who had plunged 60 feet from cliffs at the town’s harbour.


The ILB took a local doctor to the scene of the accident and assisted with stabilising the casualty until paramedics arrived.

The 15 year old girl was taken by RAF rescue helicopter to hospital with the ILB crew assisting in the airlift.

Note: The accident happened on Sunday afternoon as the girl climbed near what is known locally as the magazine of Dunbar Castle near the harbour entrance.
