At 18.44 pm on Saturday 11th December, Stornoway Coastguard rescue helicopter “Rescue 100” was scrambled by Stornoway Coastguard after they had received a request for assistance from the NHS.

The helicopter was sent to evacuate a fifty seven year old lady who was being seen by a doctor, who requested that she be evacuated to hospital urgently as she was experiencing breathing difficulties.

The Kinlochbervie Coastguard rescue team were called out to set up a landing site for the helicopter. The helicopter took the lady onboard and took her to Raigmore Hospital Inverness.

Ed Thompson, Watch Manager, Stornoway Coastguard said: “This is the 200th mission for this helicopter in 2010. This is the first time in the history of the Stornoway unit that it has achieved this number of callouts in any one year. We wish the lady well in her treatment and hope she makes a speedy recovery.”
