Bundoran Lifeboat Called to Aid Swimmers

7th June 2013
Bundoran Lifeboat Called to Aid Swimmers

#rnli – Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat were tasked to the aid of two young swimmers believed to be in trouble at Main Beach, Bundoran.

The alarm was raised by one of the lifeboat crew who happened to be at the beach and called the Coast Guard at Malin Head who immediately tasked the lifeboat. 6 minutes later the lifeboat made it to the scene to find the 2 young girls from County Leitrim had made it safely to the shore. Members of the Bundoran RNLI shore crew then treated the 2 girls for some cuts received during the incident.

Helming the lifeboat for Bundoran RNLI was Daimon Fergus who said 'we were happy to be able to assist the two girls in this instance. With the good weather, a lot more people are venturing into the water which is understandable but we would always advise bathers to keep water safety foremost in their mind. Watch out for tides and currents, never swim alone, always swim parallel to the shore and don't swim out of your depth'.
