Bundoran RNLI tasked to assist surfer

Bundoran lifeboat has had its first call-out of the year to assist a surfer in trouble at Tullan Strand.

The surfer got into difficulty around 4pm on Saturday after his surf board snapped, his friend immediately called the emergency services and Bundoran Lifeboat Crew were tasked to the scene.

The crew were on scene within minutes by which time the surfer had made his way to shore safely and the lifeboat was then stood down.

Malin Head Coast Guard also tasked the Rescue 118 Helicopter from Sligo.
