Our volunteers were paged by UK Coastguard to assist with a casualty who had fallen from a horse at Kenfig Sands (Sker Beach). Our volunteers were first of the emergency services to arrive on scene and provided casualty care whilst awaiting the arrival of Porthcawl Coastguard Team who transported paramedics to the scene. The Coastguard Rescue Helicopter based at St. Athan also attended the incident and transferred the casualty to hospital.
