BUNDORAN LIFEBOAT IN TWO CALL-OUTS

first_imgBUNDORAN lifeboat crews were involved in a double call-out late on Saturday – but thankfully both incidents proved to false alarms.The first call-out was to  kayaker suspected of being in trouble off St John’s Point.However the kayaker was fine, and the call was made by someone who had thought he was in trouble. The crew was on its way back to base when another alarm was sparked off Mullaghmore, with reports of a flare being seen off the north Sligo coast.The Sligo Rescue helicopter did an aerial search of the area but nothing was found.A spokesman for Bundoran Lifeboat said however they would rather launch to a false alarm than not be called at all.“We stood down at 11pm. But if you think you see someone in trouble in the water call the Coast Guard on 112 or 999 – we would always rather launch and be sure,” he said.  BUNDORAN LIFEBOAT IN TWO CALL-OUTS was last modified: July 14th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BUNDORAN LIFEBOAT IN TWO CALL-OUTSlast_img
