Successful rescue operation in Killybegs

The volunteer crew of Bundoran RNLI responded yesterday to reports of a 19ft vessel that had sunk off Killybegs.


The Sligo based Rescue 118 helicopter was also involved in the operation as was the Killybegs Coast Guard in addition to other vessels in the area that were also requested to help.



The lifeboat, with 4 volunteer crew on board, made its way across Donegal Bay to the scene where 2 people who had been on board had already made their way to safety and were treated by an ambulance at the Killybegs slipway.


The Bundoran lifeboat then assisted the Killybegs Coast Guard boat in securing the vessel.
