Great Yarmouth: Crew Rescued After Vessel Fire
A man was airlifted to hospital this morning after a fire on board a wind farm support vessel four miles from the coast.
Humber Coastguard got a call from the Norfolk Tern just after 8am reporting they had a fire in their starboard engine. They had managed to bring it under control, but one crewman was believed to be suffering the effects of breathing in too much smoke.
The Lowestoft and Gorleston Coastguard Rescue Teams, the search and rescue helicopter from RAF Wattisham along with the RNLI all-weather lifeboats, from Lowestoft and Gorleston, were sent to the scene. The injured crewman was winched on board the RAF helicopter and taken directly to the James Paget University Hospital.
With the lifeboats standing by, the five other crew members stayed on board the Norfolk Tern to help bring the vessel into Great Yarmouth. They were met there by Coastguard Rescue Officers, along with ambulance and fire crews.
Bev Allen, Watch Manager at Humber Coastguard, said:
"All six on board this vessel managed to quickly bring the fire under control, but one member of the crew was in need of medical attention after showing signs of breathing in too much smoke. The standby vessel Vos Discovery also provided excellent support in transferring oxygen for the injured person."
