Drunk girl sparks lifeboat rescue

A drunk teenage girl had to be rescued by lifeboat – after she wandered off from a barbecue on the Isle of Wight.

The youngster, thought to be 13 years old, was reported to be in a semi-conscious state among trees near the remains of East Cowes Castle.

Because of the difficult terrain, emergency services decided it was best to evacuate her by boat.

Cowes lifeboat was launched at 11.45pm last night and the girl was carried down the bank, across the beach and onto a lifeboat by stretcher.

A paramedic and police officer accompanied the girl and the lifeboat crew as they travelled to Trinity Landing in Cowes.

A waiting ambulance took the teenager to St Mary’s Hospital in Newport.

Dramatic headline from the Echo as usual. Why not discuss why this happened in the first place and where her parents thought she was for the night.

A 13 year old girl drunk at 11:45pm. I've just been looking for the missing girl story that the parents should have reported, but can't find it.

"A drunk teenage girl had to be rescued by lifeboat – after she wandered off from a barbecue on the Isle of Wight."

She was 13 and drunk and required rescue by a lifeboat . This is a story that should stimulate informed comment and sensible words. You and your tired mate just show how thick some people can be. Anything else you want to say that cannot be placed in the "Stupid comment" bracket?

The story does not say whether or not the girl's parents were at the party, but I am sure that social services will be thorough in their investigations.
