ALB & ILB
Aberdeen Coastguard requested assistance to be given to a diver reported injured on a dive boat approximately 16 miles east of Anstruther. The diver had suffered burns, to his back from a chemical heat pack being worn under his dive suit to relief muscular pain.
The ILB was also launched to take a member of the shore crew and paramedic with additional equipment to the ALB on route.

The casualty was then transferred to the ALB and given further aid before being safely handed over to the waiting ambulance and crew at Anstruther harbour.
