IT has been a busy few days for the South Broads Lifeboat.
Following on from their callout last week, the lifeboat was again called out a further two times in the space of three days.
On Saturday (March 14) The South Broads 4x4 was mobilised to reports of a person in the water at Reedham, however it was stood down within minutes of the launch request.
Yesterday The Broads ILB1 D-514 Lord Kitchener, was launched to aid a man who had fallen into Broadlands Holiday Village marina. The casualty was found floating near to the quay heading, where an observant local had got a lifebuoy to him.

The inshore lifeboat crew managed to collect the man safely and transferred him into the hands of a waiting ambulance crew at a nearby slipway. With the man safe, albeit rather cold with a few minor cuts, the lifeboat returned to station, being refuelled and ready for service by 9.20am.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a registered charity that saves lives at sea.

In 2007 the RNLI saved on average 21 people daily, at an approximate cost of �339,000 per day.
