Assisted Casualty while on Exercise

Whilst on exercise the Lifeboat was diverted to assist persons in the water half a mile off Clarach Bay. Two people had fallen of a Jet-ski but when the lifeboat arrived it was already under tow into the beach and casualties had been recovered. Lifeboat escorted casualties into the beach where they were met by Aberystwyth Coastguard.
