CALL OUT - This afternoon we were paged with an Immediate launch request to 4 persons on the sandbank, North of Dunnerholme Rock.
IRB Launched and was quickly on scene, the casualties were stood ankle deep in the rising tide and with another 50 minutes before high water this rescue could have had different results if not for the persons who raised the ALARM and the casualties standing their ground to avoid wading into deeper water.
