Bridlington inshore lifeboat was needed twice this afternoon (8th Aug) The stations volunteer crew were paged at 2.14 pm after reports of a jet ski rider in trouble.
On arrival at the scene, half a mile off the Fraisthorpe coast, the inshore boat was guided to the jet ski by radio from Coastguards on shore.
The inshore lifeboat crew discovered that the jet ski had flipped over but it’s rider had not been injured.
Both the man and his jet ski were taken safely to shore and met by waiting coastguards.
Just as the inshore lifeboat had been washed down refueled and put back in the boathouse they were needed again to carry out a shoreline search for two missing children.
Shortly after starting the the search the inshore lifeboat was stood down after both children had been found safe.
