Rhyl Lifeboat was launched to a dive boat 11 miles north of the boathouse, after a diver coming up was stung on the face by a jellyfish. A helicopter was not available, and so it was agreed that the dive boat would motor towards Rhyl to meet the lifeboat. This was accomplished about 6 miles out, and the casualty was transferred to the lifeboat to return to station. The man was given casualty care and put on oxygen until the lifeboat reached shore, where paramedics met the boat on the beach. The man was checked over as the boat was recovered, and he was taken to hospital in the ambulance . The boat was ready for service at 1700.
