Patient moved to a more comfortable position and monitored whilst awaiting ambulance. Oxygen therapy given. Lifeguards contacted ambulance control and advised they thought air ambulance may be the most appropriate means of evacuation due to the inaccessibility of the location. On arrival of the land ambulance the crew confirmed this would be the best method to transfer the casualty and requested the air ambulance.
