Christmas Day Callout For Tynemouth RNLI Volunteers
Tynemouth RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch at 22:06 by UK Coastguard’s Humber Operations Centre when Northumbria Police asked for assistance in rescuing a person in the river Tyne near Hebburn.
The lifeboat with a crew of three launched six minutes after the launch alert and started speeding the five miles upriver to the scene of the incident.
The lifeboat had only travelled a mile when it was confirmed that the casualty was out of the water and in the hands of paramedics, so returned to station soon after.
