RTÉ News reports that a teenager has died after a group of sea swimmers got into difficulty off the North Coast in Northern Ireland yesterday afternoon, Tuesday 16 June.

The young man was part of a group that was reportedly coasteering in the area close to Dunluce Castle, according to the Guardian, which added that local coastguard teams described the incident as a “freak accident”.

Judith McNeice, a spokesperson for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, said the teen’s friends made “valiant efforts to try and save him”, but after he was taken from the water by Portrush RNLI volunteers he was pronounced dead at the scene.
