The inshore lifeboat was launched to a report of two people on the rocks by Carats Cafe near Southwick Beach. One was believed to be suicidal and threatening to jump into the water and pull the other in with him. The lifeboat proceeded with caution to the scene. Once there, the crew were informed by the coastguard that the police were taking the suicidal man into custody. The lifeboat remained on scene until he was removed from the area. Then returned to station.
