The volunteer crew was tasked to a paddle boarder in difficulty approx. 0.5 mile off Portobello. On arrival it was found that a kayaker had also made his way out to offer assistance. He had then suffered a medical issue and also required assistance. Both casualties were returned to the beach, provided with casualty care and handed over to an ambulance.
