Tired kitesurfer is grateful to see Hoylake Lifeboat speeding to his rescue.

Whilst en-route back to Hoylake after exercising in the River Mersey, RNLI Hoylake Lifeboat this afternoon, intercepted a radio transmission between Liverpool Coastguard at Crosby and a Coastguard mobile unit stating that a kitesurfer was in the water off the North Wirral coast in the vicinity of New Brighton, the Lifeboat immediately turned around and headed for the area just as Liverpool Coastguard tasked the Lifeboat to the incident.

Hoylake Lifeboat, under the command of RNLI second Coxswain Andy Dodd made best speed towards the position given by the Coastguard unit. The casualty was quickly located and brought aboard the All weather Lifeboat from Hoylake.

At the same time New Brighton Lifeboat was also launched to the incident and transferred the hypothermic casualty to the ambulance waiting ashore for the short trip to Arrow Park Hospital.

With the Gentleman safely ashore, both RNLI Lifeboats returned to their Lifeboat stations.
