A Braunton woman rescued from an 80ft cliff fall by the RAF Chivenor Sea King has said it will be a great shame to lose her big yellow friend in October.The RAF crew is due to be disbanded while the Search and Rescue duties move to operate from a new base - with a brand new helicopter - in St Athan, Wales. Pat Beevers, 71, was airlifted to hospital by the crew after tumbling down a cliff face on a wooded walk between Lynmouth and Watersmeet in August last year.Dislocated shoulderPat, who dislocated her shoulder in the fall, said if it wasnt for the patience and help of the Sea King crew, her injuries could have been a lot worse. She told the Gazette: My husband Ken and my pen friend of 60 years, Margaret, who was visiting from New Zealand, were in front of me with the dog at the time. I could see the path in front of me as clear as can be, and the next thing I knew I opened my eyes and was rolling down the bank with twigs and stones flying around.No room to landThe air ambulance attended the scene but could not land for the trees, so the Sea King winchman zipped down to assess the situation. He suggested Pat be carried by stretcher and then vehicle to Lynmouth where the Sea King could safely land and wait to take her to hospital. My shoulder had, by the time I reached the hospital, been out for about four hours if I had to make that journey by vehicle it would have been much longer, said Pat. The number of times I had said, Id love a ride in that helicopter but not like that.Still recoveringThe crew was so patient waiting for me to be stretchered to Lynmouth. I dont think a crew from Wales would be able to wait around like they did. Still recovering from her injuries, Pat said she often walks her dogs along the Tarka Trail and sees the Sea King landing or taking off from RMB Chivenor. Its a part of the community, and I will be very sad to see it go, she added.If you have been rescued by the Sea King, or wish to tell us why you will miss the familiar sight in the sky, email Sarah Howells on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01271 341658.
