Busy weekend for Bundoran RNLI

 

The volunteer crew of Bundoran RNLI had a busy weekend. 

The crew were tasked to three separate incidents over Saturday and Sunday.

Just after half 3 on Saturday afternoon the Bundoran RNLI crew was alerted to 3 people caught in a rip current at Bundoran’s Main Beach.

Minutes after launching, the lifeboat arrived at the beach to find that the swimmers had been assisted by some locals and were safely out of the water and in the care of the HSE ambulance crew.

On Sunday morning, while on exercise in the Teelin area, the lifeboat was redirected to Murvagh beach to reports of a person having fallen off a horse and injuring themselves.

However, while the boat was en route to Murvagh, it was re-tasked back to Bundoran to assist a jet-ski that had broken down in the West End.

The jet-ski was subsequently towed by the lifeboat back to the pier and Rescue 118 dealt with the incident at Murvagh.

A spokesperson from the RNLI has advised that if you see anyone in danger along the coast at any time call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.
