Man dies after going overboard while fishing off Donegal coast

A man in his 20s died off the coast of Donegal on Saturday night.

The man went overboard while fishing for crabs.

The Malin Head Coast Guard said it responded to a distress call from a fishing vessel 70 miles north of Arranmore last night which had several people on board at the time.

The alert was made at around 8.30pm and rescue helicopter 118 and Arranmore Lifeboat were dispatched to the area.

The operation was stood down after crew members on board the vessel managed to take their colleague from the water.
