Emergency services responded Monday afternoon to a collision at sea south of the palace Pier in Brighton

Volunteer crew from Brighton RNLI were tasked at 2.57pm on August 1 to a report of an incident between a Jet Ski and rib, South of Brighton Palace Pier.

On arrival, the crew found an injured female casualty in the water and an assessment of the person was made.

Also on scene was BHCC’s Lifeguard patrol boat, which was joined by HM Coastguard rescue helicopter from Lydd. The helicopter lowered their paramedic and specialist equipment to the lifeboat.

In a joint operation, the casualty was brought onto the lifeboat and transported to Brighton Marina, where SECAMB took over their care.

Lifeboat operations manager Roger Cohen said: ‘Firstly, the whole crew give their best wishes for the recovery of the casualty.

‘I’d also like to add that I am proud of the team that attended the tasking who acted quickly and professionally, our frequent and thorough training kicked in to ensure we knew what to when faced with an injured person in the water.’

The B class Atlantic 85 relief lifeboat Ted Dawber, currently used by the crew at Brighton returned to the station at 4.15pm.

The RNLI advises that if you see any one you think is in trouble on the beach or sea, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

When you take a craft to sea, always let someone know where you are going and when you will be back. Take a means of calling for help.

Shoreham and Newhaven Coastguard were also on scene providing support.

The coastguard helicopter then landed in the Brighton landing site till the medic was returned and took off around 17:20
