The RNLI has shared dramatic footage of their involvement in a rescue operation to help a walker who took unwell in Fife on Wednesday afternoon.
A woman, said to be in her 70s, was airlifted to hospital by a UK Coastguard helicopter after suffering chest pains on the Fife Coastal Path between Crail and Anstruther.
Anstruther’s inshore and all-weather lifeboats responded to the incident.
In the video RNLI crew members are seen administering first aid to the woman as she is comforted by a man.
Resting against a rock as they arrive, she told the rescuers: “I had a pain in my chest, I couldn’t breathe”.
Her condition is said to have improved by the time she left the scene.
