Bundoran lifeboat rescues stranded boaters

Two people had to be rescued off the Donegal coast at the weekend after their boat’s engine lost power.

Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat was tasked to the scene to aid a small pleasure craft, following a mayday call to Malin Head Coast Guard on Saturday evening.

The alarm was raised when two emergency flares, deployed from the boat, were spotted.

The craft had to be towed by the Bundoran lifeboat as it was floating dangerously close to rocks.
