Broughty Ferry lifeboat volunteers have been involved in a dramatic double call-out involving on the River Tay.
Both station lifeboats were called into action just after 7.30pm on Thursday after the Coastguard received calls for the separate incidents unfolding at different locations on the river involving jet skiers and a windsurfer.
The first Ferry crew out manned the inshore lifeboat, Oor Lifesaver, and headed east towards Broughty beach near the castle.
It was responding to reports of two jet skiers who had come off their machine and were unable to get back on.
Quickly on the scene, the volunteer crew found the pair distressed and clinging to the jet ski.
Both were rescued from the water before making the short trip back to the lifeboat station where the crew treated them for cold exposure.
An ambulance crew arrived soon after and assessed both casualties who were found to be in good health and not requiring any medical attention.
The inshore lifeboat then returned to the incident scene to recover the jet ski and return it to Broughty harbour.
At the same time, the all-weather lifeboat, Elizabeth of Glamis headed west towards the area in front of the Royal Tay Yacht Club where reports had been called in for a windsurfer in trouble.
Following a thorough search of the area by the lifeboat crew, no windsurfers were found.
The Coastguard crew on shore confirmed they had talked to windsurfers who had been in that vicinity and who were all well.
The all-weather lifeboat then made towards the waters off Broughty beach to standby in case the inshore lifeboat required assistance.
Colin Davidson of Broughty Ferry RNLI said: “Thankfully due to the vigilance of the public and the jet skiers wearing personal flotation devices there was a good outcome.
“Last night’s events highlighted the versatility of Broughty Ferry RNLI to respond to separate incidents simultaneously.
“Whereas this is not an everyday event, the potential is there every day. Only the kindness and support shown by the public with continued fundraising and donations to Broughty RNLI ensures that they will always be there when it counts.
“Special thanks to all that called the coastguard and lifeboat station to report last night’s incidents,” he added.
