Eastbourne Lifeboat RNLI Volunteer Crew were paged today Wednesday 27th July at 15.30 hrs.

They were requested to launch the Inshore Lifeboat and tasked to assist Local Coastguards with locating and recovering a dog and the owner that had become trapped on the cliff face.

After the dog had fallen nearly 400 feet and the distraught owner trying to recover it.

A local Coastguard was lowered down the cliff face recovering the injured dog and owner onto the beach to awaiting Inshore Lifeboat.

Due to the deteriorating sea conditions and the state of tide Helmsman Dean Parker made the decision to take everyone back to the Inshore Lifeboat station.

Once back ashore the owner very cold and shocked was cared for by Lifeboat crew and the dog taken to local vets by Coastguard to be checked over and treated for any injuries.

Eastbourne RNLI said “This was a very unfortunate accident and we would urge people to be aware of the dangers whilst walking along the coastline with dogs.”

Always dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard in situations like this.
