THE volunteer crew of Bundoran RNLI was called out yesterday afternoon to reports of bodyboarders in trouble at Rossnowlagh Beach.
Just after 2.05pm, the crew was alerted to the situation by Malin Head Coast Guard who had received an emergency call. Within minutes the crew had assembled at the lifeboat station and launched the ‘William Henry Liddington’ Atlantic 85 lifeboat heading for Rossnowlagh,
In good weather conditions, the lifeboat arrived on scene around 2.25pm and were informed by a lifeguard on duty that the two bodyboarders had made it safely ashore.
Speaking on their return to Bundoran, volunteer crew member Michael Patton said, “During this period of good weather we would always advise people to visit a lifeguarded beach and to obey the instructions of the lifeguards. We would also remind people that if they see someone in trouble on the coast do not hesitate to ring 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.”
