Overnight rescue by the crew of Sea King from RNAS Culdrose
The UK coastguard in Falmouth and the RNAS Culdrose Sea King rescue helicopter were scrambled to assist the chemical tanker Bochem Oslo near Lands' End at 10pm yesterday
Three men have been taken to hospital after being splashed by a highly corrosive chemical on-board a ship.
The crew, who were travelling to Hamburg in Germany, raised a distress call when three men – all of whom are of Indian decent and in their mid 20s – came in to contact with concentrated nitric acid
A spokesman for the UK coastguard in Falmouth said: "We sought medical advice from the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and they advised an immediate evacuation
Due to gale-force winds, the helicopter was unable to rescue the men at sea, instead the tanker was forced to take shelter in Mounts Bay while the crew of the Sea King lifted them off-boardThe pilot of a Royal Navy helicopter that rescued three men from a tanker off Cornwall says the swell was moving the vessel around 40 foot at one stage. Commander Scott Armstrong from 771 squadron at RNAS Culdrose says conditions were so rough initially that the winchman wasn't able to land on board the Bochem Oslo. In total the rescue lasted six hours, ending at 0400 this morning, and the three men were taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Their condition is unknown but they are described as 'walking wounded.'
