Porthdinllaen RNLI volunteers received a request by Holyhead Coastguard to launch the Tamar class lifeboat at 3.15pm to an injured fisherman on the Lleyn Peninsular coast.
The RNLI volunteers rushed down to the station, launching the all-weather lifeboat under the command of Second Coxswain Robert Jones. The volunteers quickly made their way two miles west off Nant Gwytheyrn where the fishing boat was reportedly located.
The volunteer crew arrived on scene, shortly followed by Rescue 122 helicopter. It was decided that the lifeboat would tow the fishing boat immediately back to Morfa Nefyn. The fishing boat was towed by the all-weather lifeboat back to the bay where police and paramedics were waiting.
