Bundoran RNLI rescues stranded walker

Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat was this afternoon tasked by Malin Head Coast Guard to an adult female who became trapped on rocks whilst walking near Mullaghmore in County Sligo.

The holiday maker was walking along the coastline when she realised that the tide was coming back in and it was impossible to turn back.

She had her mobile phone with her and called the coast guard via the 112 emergency number.

The voluntary Bundoran Lifeboat crew launched within 6 minutes and were on the scene 12 minutes later where they assisted the female on to the lifeboat

The woman was uninjured.

The Rescue 118 helicopter was also tasked but stood down.
