RNLI rescue capsized kayaker
KYLE of Lochalsh RNLI volunteers rescued a woman after her kayak capsized near Skye bridge.
The crew was called out at 2.45pm last Wednesday May 17, when rough conditions caused the kayak to capsize, leaving the casualty unable to get out of the water.
Kyle lifeboat Spirit of Fred Olsen launched to help rescue the woman a mile west of Skye bridge.
The lifeboat arrived within three minutes, by which time a fishing boat was on scene.
The woman was taken on the lifeboat where the crew assessed her condition and then transferred to the pontoons where an ambulance was waiting.
The lifeboat returned to its station and was refuelled and ready for service again by 3.20pm.
