Salcombe RNLI provided medical assistance to a casualty who was brought into Salcombe Harbour by RIB after falling onto rocks.
Salcombe Lifeboats launched on Sunday evening to assist the casualty with "injuries consistent with having a fall on rocks".
The casualty was checked out on the pontoon, given Entonox, transferred to a stretcher, and taken to the lifeboat station to wait for an ambulance.
A spokesperson for Salcombe RNLI said: "Among others, the Lifeboat Medical Officer and a crew member who is also a student paramedic were in attendance and supported the casualty throughout.
"When the ambulance crew arrived, shortly followed by the Devon Air Ambulance crew, the casualty was transferred to the ambulance for transport to the rugby field for onward transfer to the air ambulance and Derriford hospital."
