17 Jul #17 – MOBILITY SCOOTER – 16/07/2021
BARB’s volunteers were called at 3.37pm to assist Burnham Coastguards with an incident on Burnham beach.
A mobility scooter user had got stuck in mud near the low lighthouse and, after the lady had been helped free by the Coastguards, further assistance was required from BARB when it emerged that the scooter had lost power.
As we have a spare trailer that is ideal for this type of incident, we retrieved the scooter, along with its owner in our truck, and took them to the seafront for their onward journey. It was a quick call-out with a positive outcome.
