A North Cork sailor recently reunited with the people who saved his life after he was electrocuted while moving his sailboat.
As Echo Live reports, it’s now a year since Noel Moloney was hit with a 10,000-volt electric shock when the mast from his boat connected with overhead power lines as he was moving it out of a field behind his home.
Noel’s family immediately sprang into action, with his son Shane pulling him away from the boat by his clothing, while his wife Debbie was assisted by neighbours in giving him CPR.
Noel was finally revived with a defibrillator by first responders — and he took the opportunity to thank them and everyone else who had a hand in bringing him back as part of the Big Push to Save Lives campaign.
The campaign will see emergency personnel in North Cork push an ambulance for a marathon distance around Mallow’s Cork Racecourse this April, in aid of first responder schemes in Ballyclough, Liscarrol and the Mallow area.
