Anstruther RNLI launched this afternoon (Wednesday 20 May) to the aid of a female who had fallen 20 feet from the Elie Chain Walk
The volunteers aboard the inshore lifeboat launched at 4.15pm and proceeded to the scene.
The casualty had sustained injuries to both ankles. After a medical assessment, a transfer by sea on the lifeboat was decided to be safest method of evacuation.
This was the volunteer crews first call out in over 10 weeks and the first during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Volunteer helm Barry Gourlay extended his thanks to his crew. Barry said: 'This was our first call out in over 10 weeks but that did not show. We train to a high standard and that training helped ensure we were able to execute this rescue swiftly and safely'
