A 42 year-old woman was rescued and taken to hospital with head injuries after falling on rocks at Aberdour’s Black Sands on Sunday 19 March.

The Scottish Ambulance Service attended after being called out but requested the assistance of HM Coastguard.  The Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat was taking part in an exercise near Inchkeith island and responded quickly.

Lifeboat helmsman Neil Chalmers said: “While training, the coastguard requested our assistance at Aberdour.

“We were first on scene with two crew members going ashore with casualty care equipment to assess the lady.

“The casualty had been walking on rocks near Aberdour Golf Club and had slipped and fallen, sustaining a head injury which was bleeding.

“Our crew began to assess the lady as the ambulance service paramedics arrived.”

The casualty was taken to hospital for treatment.
