Another great job by Rescue 117

James Young one of our latest new members was one of the rescuers of a small rib driver which was thrown of his boat in Tramore bay. It seemed like NO KILL CORD APPLIED😡…… The sailor was brought to shore by James but later airlifted to Waterford hospital for treatment. And the boat ? Probably still doing circles….

A poignant reminder to everyone using the waters to be vigilant, no matter what the conditions always wear a lifejacket and tell someone where you are going and what time you expect to return. If you see someone in difficulty in the water dial 112 or 999 and ask for Coast Guard. Well done to all involved in the Rescue.
