swilly lifeboatThe RNLI has released dramatic footage of the rescue of a fisherman who was found clinging to a lobster pot bouy off Tullagh beach in Clonmany.

The call for help came when a mother and her son, who were out tending sheep near Tullagh beach, heard cries for help and saw a man out at sea clinging to a lobster bouy.

He was taken from the water by a local vessel and transferred to the Lough Swilly lifeboat for first aid, before being airlifted to hospital.

The man’s boat has not been found.
