RNLI called to help three-year-old boy with breathing difficulties

Paramedics and the RNLI were called out to help a three-year-old boy who was suffering breathing difficulties on board a yacht on Wroxham broad early this morning.

The South Broads lifeboat 4x4 transported paramedics to the yacht, on moorings alongside the island at Wroxham Broad.

The 4x4 and the XP class inflatable lifeboat arrived on scene at 3:32am.

A paramedic examined the child and recommended that he be taken to visit a doctor later in the day.

At 4.40am the vessel was moored up at Wroxham Bridge until the child could be seen by doctors.
