Happisburgh lifeboat called to help collapsed man with chest pains
Happisburgh lifeboat crew went to the aid of a man on a boat who had collapsed with chest pains yesterday evening.
The 55-year-old was one of the crew of a motorboat, heading for Grimsby, which was 4.5 miles north of Happisburgh when the lifeboat crew was alerted.
Matt Bales and Cubitt Siely junior - on his first call out - boarded the motorboat and gave the man treatment including oxygen and aspirin before transferring him to the lifeboat, skippered by Tony Phenix, in a very heavy swell.
The man was brought ashore and taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital by land ambulance.
Happisburgh lifeboat crew underwent first-aid training last month and a spokesman said they were pleased that it had proved useful and effective during the callout.
