#Rescue - Two tourists have been rescued after falling from cliffs at Howth Head yesterday afternoon (Saturday 5 April).
Working quickly as the teen was at risk of slipping further down the cliff, rescuers lowered a rope to secure him before a winchman from Irish Coast Guard helicopter Rescue 116 was able to reach the casualty, who had minor injuries, and lift him aboard.
Meanwhile, the second casualty, an older male, was found to have fallen 150 feet to the beach at the foot of the cliffs.
He was stabilised by paramedics while Rescue 116 prepared to airlift him to Tallaght Hospital for treatment. His condition is not yet known.
