Injured Walker in Hastings Park Airlifted to Safety

On November 29th, the Hastings Coastguard team, in coordination with HM Coastguard Bexhill, responded to an emergency in Hastings Country Park where an individual had suffered a suspected fractured ankle after slipping in mud. The injured person, who was unable to bear weight on the affected ankle, was located at a significant distance from an accessible ambulance point.

Given the challenging terrain and the distance involved, a conventional stretcher evacuation was considered unfeasible. As a result, the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter was deployed for the operation. The paramedic aboard the helicopter administered pain relief to the casualty before safely winching them aboard for transport.

Additionally, HM Coastguard – Rye Bay played a crucial role by setting up a helicopter landing site at Conquest Hospital. This ensured a smooth handover of the casualty for further medical care
