Hartlepool RNLI inshore lifeboat and volunteer crew were requested at 22.49 on Tuesday 3rd January by UK Coastguard to a report of a person in the water at Middleton Pier, Hartlepool.

The inshore lifeboat was launched at 11.00pm and made its way to the nearby Middleton Pier where the person was quickly located. 

Within 5 minutes the casualty was recovered onto the inshore lifeboat and brought back to the lifeboat station where the lifeboat station doctor administered first aid. 

The casualty was then transferred to an awaiting ambulance and taken to hospital.

Hartlepool RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager Mike Craddy said ‘a quick response from the volunteer lifeboat crew resulted in a successful extraction from the water and we hope the casualty makes a quick recovery from their ordeal’.

The inshore lifeboat was made ready for service again at 11.30pm.

Also called out were Hartlepool Coastguard Rescue Team and Seaham Coastguard.
