Rope Rescue near Dunluce Castle

1 Mins read

Coleraine Coastguard Team and Portrush All Weather Lifeboat were tasked to the coast east of Dunluce Castle late yesterday afternoon following a report of two men trapped below the cliffs.

The coastguards quickly located a colleague of the two men who had managed to clamber across the rocks and raise the alarm.

The Coleraine Coastguard Team, backed up by colleagues from Ballycastle, deployed two rope technicians who were lowered down the steep cliff. The two casualties were then winched to safety.

Afterwards they explained to Coastguards that one of them had got caught in the heavy swell while coasteering and all three had sought refuge on the rocks, beneath the 100 foot cliffs.

After the incident, all three men were checked by Ambulance Paramedics. The PSNI also assisted at the scene.
