RNLB Alfred Albert Williams (Tamar All-Weather Lifeboat 16-17) was launched at around 6.30pm this evening at the request of UK Coastguard to carry out a medivac (an elderly female passenger had dislocated her shoulder) from the Cruise Ship Balmoral that was in the process of leaving Southampton Water bound for Lisbon.  

The Alfred Albert Williams RV'd with the Balmoral off Stokes Bay at 6.35pm and the casualty was  transfered on a stretcher to the Alfred Albert Williams via Balmoral's starboard pilot hatch.  She and her husband were then taken into Portsmouth Camber and transferred to an ambulance. 

The Alfred Albert Williams subsequently returned to Bembridge and was recovered by 8.45pm.
