RAF Sea King carries out rescue at Pembroke Castle

First published in County News

A woman injured in the keep at Pembroke Castle was airlifted from the top of the keep by a RAF Rescue helicopter this afternoon (Tuesday).

The Sea King helicopter Rescue 169 was called from RAF Chivenor due to the difficulty of the location.

A 52-year-old woman was said to have injuries to her right side following a fall at the 80ft castle keep and she was taken to Morriston Hospital, Swansea.

Rescue crews arrived at around 4.10pm and were at the incident for around 25 minutes.

A Western Telegraph reader sent this photograph and said: "A big crowd watched as the helicopter hovered into position while paramedics arranged the lift of the injured lady."

This video of the Sea King circling Pembroke was uploaded by Sharon Clague.
