Air and Sea Rescue

This was a normal Sunday when all of a sudden I heard and saw a Royal Navy Rescue helicopter literally outside my living room window.

A small boat and its passengers appeared to be in trouble.   The helicopter was joined by an RNLI boat and the Wemyss Bay to Rothesay Ferry moved from its usual sailing lane to take up a position just south of the small boat.

Before the helicopter came it was clear that a diver that was in trouble and it was proving difficult to get the diver back on the boat. 

I was taking pictures I found myself holding my breath not knowing what was going to happen next as I watched the RN send a person down to the boat then airlift someone off.

 I do hope that all is well with the diver.
