Woman and three children rescued after becoming trapped in mud

 

Morecambe RNLI hovercraft

At 3.30pm on Saturday 20 October 2018, HM Coastguard requested Morecambe’s RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew to go to the assistance of local coastguards and firefighters from Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service who were working to free a woman and three children trapped in the mud in the vicinity of the River Keer estuary near Warton.

A Morecambe RNLI spokesman said: “The inshore rescue hovercraft was quickly launched and proceeded to the scene where they assisted in digging the woman out of the mud before transporting her to shore and into the care of a waiting ambulance crew.

“The three children having been freed before their arrival.”

The crew were called out again, just after 9pm later that evening, following reports of two people in the water off the Sandylands area of Morecambe; but they were stood down prior to launching, after it was confirmed that the reported ‘casualties’ were safe.
