Our brave volunteers from HM Coastguard Lytham were called out yesterday afternoon (Saturday 20th March) at 3.54 p.m. to assist in the rescue of a male who had lost his balance and become stuck in the mud on the river bank in the Freckleton area. They were joined by HM Coastguard Fleetwood. the Police, the Fire Service and Ambulance Service. The multi-agency response resulted in a successful rescue.
However, whilst on route back home, one of the Lytham Coastguard Officers & two of Fleetwood’s Coastguard Officers came across an unconscious person at the side of the road. The teams administered first aid until the arrival of the ambulance.
