The Oban Times - - NEWS -

THE Coast­guard res­cue heli­copter was called into ac­tion last week (Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 25) to air­lift a per­son from Mull to Lorn and Is­lands Hos­pi­tal at Oban.

The heli­copter was called out af­ter Oban lifeboat had been asked to as­sist with the med­i­cal trans­fer from Craignure.

Due to the an­tic­i­pated weather con­di­tions and the ca­su­alty’s con­di­tion, it was de­cided the safest form of evac­u­a­tion was via the res­cue heli­copter.
