A person fell on rocks at Holywell yesterday afternoon and suffered a serious head injury.

Here’s Eastbourne RNLI: “Our Volunteer Crew were requested to launch the Inshore Lifeboat and tasked to assist a person that had fallen on rocks at Holywell.

Once on scene two of our Volunteer crew went ashore to assess the casualty who was found to have sustained a serious injury to their head.

Casualty care was carried out to stabilise the casualty to enable them to be evacuated from the rocks by the Lifeboat as had now become cut off by the rising tide.

The casualty was taken ashore and passed into the care of waiting Coastguards and Ambulance.”
