Douglas lifeboat was called out this morning to help a fishermen who required medical attention to an injured hand.
Volunteer crew members were paged at 9.15am to go to the aid of the vessel, which was around 15 miles south east of Douglas.
The RNLI all-weather lifeboat Sir William Hillary was launched under the command of volunteer coxswain Neal Corran after the fishing vessel’s skipper had reported a crewman had injured his hand quite badly, requiring immediate medical assistance.
The fishing vessel made its way towards Douglas to meet the lifeboat. The injured crewman was transferred to the lifeboat and brought into the Liner Berth between the Victoria and King Edward Piers in Douglas harbour.
The casualty was then given into the care of a waiting ambulance crew.
