The full team was paged at 15:29 and asked to provide IRT cover to man the HLS (Helicopter Lansing Site) at Dorchester Rugby Club.

St. Athan (South Wales) based Rescue 187 was inbound from Charmouth Beach with a 77 year old female casualty. The casualty had fallen and sustained a very serious leg injury, requiring evacuation by air to the nearest hospital. The IRT secured the landing site in preparation for Rescue 187, and upon arrival assisted with casualty transfer to the awaiting SWAST ambulance.

When the casualty was safely in the hands of SWAST, Rescue 187 departed Dorchester Rugby Club, and the IRT were allowed to return to base.
