A kayaker goes missing during a violent storm.
After a hard day’s training, the crew of Royal Navy Rescue 177 are returning to base. On the way they get a call to attend to an American tourist, who has fallen and broken her ankle while sailing off the coast of the Isle of Iona. The boat has a 60ft mast, which makes a direct descent for Paramedic Winchman Andy ‘Dicko’ Dixon impossible.
The crew of RAF Lossiemouth’s Search and Rescue get a call informing them of a woman who, while taking part in a team-building exercise, has suspected spinal injuries after jumping 30ft into water and landing badly. The pilot speeds to the scene of the accident in the Cairngorms National Park, which is nearly 70 miles away.
