Man With Chest Injuries Rescued In Robin Hood's Bay

Emergency services in Whitby and Ravenscar have been called out to a man with chest injuries.

It happened in Robin Hood's Bay at around 2.35pm yesterday (Tuesday 3rd December).

Humber Coastguard Operations Centre called Whitby and Ravenscar Coastguard Teams and Whitby RNLI to help. 

Upon arrival at the scene, Coastguards found a male had sustained chest injuries and was on the rocks near North Cheek.

Coastguards and Lifeboat crew provided casualty care and reassurance.

Due to the location of the incident, the casualties injuries and the incoming tide, a number of extrication methods were discussed and it was decided that the safest method for both crews and casualty was to transport by helicopter.

Rescue 912 was sent from Humberside Airport to extract the casualty. Rescue 912 pinched the casualty off the rocks and transported him directly to James Cook Hospital.

Whitby RNLI's ILB stood by while Coastguards made their way off the rocks due to the state of the tide.

If you or someone you see is in trouble on the sea, shore or cliffs around the coastline call 999 ask for the Coastguard.
