On Thursday 17th August, Dover Lifeboat was launched on service for a medical evacuation from the Saga Sapphire cruise liner. The casualty, an elderly gentleman, had fallen whilst on board and required transferring from the ship to awaiting ambulances ashore.

Our Marine Training Manager, Darryl Cooper, volunteers as part of the RNLI Lifeboat crew in his spare time. Together with the cruise ship crew, the lifeboat transferred the stretchered casualty and his wife safely from the pilot door of the Saga Sapphire.

Overseeing the transfer and responsible for the casualty's care, examination and x-ray onboard was Dr Raeesa Razack. Completing her basic safety courses before her first deployment, Dr Razack had recently been a participant in some of Darryl's sessions at the Maritime Skills Academy.

After the transfer was complete and the casualty was safe in the care of paramedics, Darryl and Dr Razack exchanged a brief greeting before the lifeboat moved off to the applause of the other passengers lining the rails.

Following the incident, Darryl said, "Although under unfortunate circumstances it was excellent to see an MSA student working in such a professional and efficient manner".

The injured gentleman is known to be recovering well.
