3 people fall from jet ski in the River Mersey

Whilst engaged on a routine exercise in the River Mersey to support the re-enactment of the Monks Ferry crossing, crew members noticed three persons in the water just off Seacombe Ferry Terminal. As the lifeboat sped to their assistance, it became apparent that they had fallen off a jet ski which was floating nearby.

Two persons remounted the jet ski and one other, who appeared to be winded, was brought aboard the Lifeboat. After it was decided that the casualty was okay, she was transferred to New Brighton Lifeboat who took her back to New Brighton.
