Cowes Lifeboat Recovers Body in the Solent

14 January 2014

Cowes RNLI lifeboat assisted in the recovery of a body spotted in shallow water off East Cowes this morning.

The body, of a middle aged man, was in about two feet of water at Old Castle Point. The lifeboat helm, Patrick Moreton, said later, “Two members of the crew, Heather Boden and Graham Creagh, went into the water to assist the police to recover the body which was taken to a nearby police van.”

The lifeboat, which had launched at about 10 am, returned to station an hour later.
