Person rescued after cliff fall

At 15:52 16 March 2021, a member of the public dialled 992/112 called the Joint Emergency Services Control Centre (JESCC) to report that their friend had fallen down the cliffs at Icart Point whilst walking in the area.

At 16:20 the St Peter Port RNLI relief all weather Lifeboat 'Daniel L Gibson' and the inshore Lifeboat 'Elizabeth & Margaret Milligan' were launched to proceed to the scene of the incident to assess the casualties' condition and to ascertain if a recovery by sea could be carried out.

Bailiwick Law Enforcement, St John Ambulance, Guernsey Fire and Rescue Service' Cliff Rescue team and Guernsey Coastguard officers attended at Icart Point to prepare for a possible rope rescue if required.

However, this was not needed as the crew of the inshore Lifeboat had managed to get to the casualty and recover him safely to the Lifeboat for onward transport back to St Peter Port harbour and the awaiting ambulance service there.

Both Lifeboats returned to station by 17:56 and the incident was closed at 18:00.
