Teenage Girl Saved From Drowning at Southerness in Dramatic RNLI Rescue

Silloth RNLI lifeboat was launched on the 7 July at 09:55 to a local girl stranded on rocks, cut off by the tide at Southerness, Dumfries and Galloway
The volunteer crew arrived on scene within 24 minutes of being paged  at 10:09, by which time the casualty was standing in seawater about 300 meters off shore. The crew aided the girl to safety and got her onto the lifeboat.
Steven Henderson the senior helm at Silloth RNLI lifeboat told DGWGO  “We were able to manoeuvre the boat through the rocks and drop the casualty close to the shore. A member of the crew then accompanied the girl safely onto the beach, where Portling Coastguard was waiting.”
The lifeboat returned to station and made ready again for service by 11:00.
The RNLI lifeboat crew were Steven Henderson Senior Helm, Andrew Stanley, Andy Scott and James Bridges
If you see anyone in trouble on the coast, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
Check the times of the tide and don’t walk out too far.
