Man rescued after fall at Beaumaris promenade

RNLI / Beaumaris Lifeboat

A pensioner is in hospital with a suspected broken leg after he fell into the water at Beaumaris promenade.

RNLI volunteers from the town’s lifeboat station were called out at around 8.35am on Wednesday morning (20th March). The man was out on a morning walk with his wife when he slipped and fell into the Menai Strait.

Two workers from Beaumaris Town Council, Wynn Roberts and Gwynfor Owen, were the first to arrive at the scene.

They threw out a rope to the pensioner and stayed with him until the RNLI team arrived, along with the rescue crew from Penmon Coastguard.

The man was put on a stretcher and taken from the water to the lifeboat house. A spokesman for Beaumaris RNLI said the casualty was also very cold as he waited for the ambulance to take him to hospital.
