VOS Discovery to the Rescue!

VOS Discovery to the Rescue!

Yesterday morning, while undertaking a routine cargo run into Great Yarmouth, the VOS Discovery responded to a distress call.

The distress call came from the Norfolk Tern, a wind farm workboat, which had suffered a fire on-board. Although the fire had been successfully extinguished by the Norfolk Tern crew members, one of them was suffering from smoke inhalation.

VOS Discovery launched her daughter craft and transferred a crew member on to the Norfolk Tern to administer oxygen. VOS Discovery remained in close proximity until the injured person was airlifted to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
