1 Mins read

Portrush RNLI and RNLI lifeguards at Portstewart Strand worked together today (Sunday 9 August) to help a person who got into dificulty on a jet-ski.
Volunteer crew from Portrush RNLI launched their all-weather lifeboat to reports of a jet-ski in difficulty in Portstewart.
The RNLI Lifeguards were called to assist the jet-ski but because of the large sea swell advised the Coastguard to request the launch of Portrush RNLI to assist.

The all-weather launched at 6pm and quickly arrived on scene. The volunteer lifeboat crew passed the tow rope to the RNLI lifeguards who then attached it to the jet-ski. The all-weather lifeboat crew then transferred the casualty onto the lifeboat and commenced the tow back to Portrush Harbour. The casualty was unharmed.
The lifeguards then resumed operational duty on Portstewart Strand.

Speaking following the call out, Robin Cardwell, Portrush RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said: ‘This is another great example of the RNLI services working together on the north coast, with both the lifeboat crew and the lifeguards being able to put their skills and training to good use.’
