A local ambulance crew called for assistance from the town’s coastguard unit which prepared a landing spot for the helicopter.
The casualty was flown to the Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester where his condition is currently not known.
Coastguards from Lyme Regis and Rescue Helicopter 106 had been put on standby just minutes earlier when police called them to help look for a missing four-year-old boy.
