Dramatic rescue of four people from a stranded RIB, stuck on the marshes east of Lymington River. Under extreme weather conditions the crew found the vessel on the lee shore on the marsh.  Two RNLI crew were dropped at the edge of the marsh and supported each casualty one at a time to the lifeboat. Given the sea state and the tide conditions it was unsafe to recover the vessel at the time. The casualties were taken to Lymington and transferred to the care of the ambulance service.
