What was supposed to be a rescue demonstration in West Bay turned into a real life drama on Sunday.
Weymouth lifeboat was tasked to transport a diver that was suffering from the bends to the recompression chamber in Poole.
Portland Coastguard Helicopter was tied up on a rescue in Chepstow and the nearest helicopter was coming from Lee On Solent.
Weymouth Lifeboat met the chopper to cut down on the journey time - which took 45 minutes.
