RNLI Volunteer Lifeguards at Whitmore Bay

Lifeguards at Whitmore Bay

Saturday 15 August saw UWC Atlantic College RNLI volunteer lifeguards Florien van Weerelt and Sara Mahmud Marshall, going to Whitmore Bay (Barry Island) for a regular shift on the beach as one of the four we regularly patrol in the Vale of Glamorgan.  As volunteers we work alongside the paid RNLI lifeguards.  

After a quiet morning when there wasn't a great deal of action, things really kicked off in the afternoon.  The lifeguards were first called to an elderly lady fell and hit her head.  The lifeguards administered oxygen and monitored her condition until another ambulance arrived. 

Later in the afternoon, the lifeguards were tasked to a casualty near one of the amusement arcades on the promenade. On arriving at the scene, the lifeguards quickly assessed the casualty and called for an ambulance.

Finally, a young boy fell and badly gashed his head, and was treated for the wound.   Just to cap off the afternoon, four lost children were reported to the lifeguards and all successfully found and re-united with their grateful parents. 

Just a ‘regular’ day for our RNLI volunteer lifeguards!
