A PENSIONER was rescued from the Pembrokeshire Coast path on Saturday afternoon (November 30).

The emergency services were alerted to the incident shortly after 12.30pm. It involved a 70-year-old man suffering a suspected stroke at Pen y Cwm.

Coastguard teams from St Davids and Broad Haven, an ambulance, and police were called out to the scene, along with a helimed air ambulance.

The man was carried to the helicopter before being airlifted to hospital.

On Sunday morning the casualty’s husband Sue Cox posted on the Positive Pembrokeshire Facebook page thanking everyone involved in the rescue.

She said: “Yesterday was a very tough day. My husband Barry was taken ill with a stroke whilst walking to The Cwm at Pen y Cwm. He was found by a very kind gentleman from Simpson Cross, Jerry English.

“I want to thank him from the bottom of my heart for saving Barry. Within minutes paramedics, coastguard and air ambulance were in attendance.

Barry was in Withybush Hospital within 45 minutes. I am so thankful for their sterling work which was way, way above the call of duty.

“Coastguard Viv from Little Haven you are a diamond and to Steve thank you so much. I am sorry not to be able to name all of the people who helped us but your unstinting help will be remembered forever.”
