A twelve year old boy had a lucky escape yesterday evening Sunday. 22nd May 2017. The boy tumbled 15 feet down a steep slope on to rocks at Castlerock.

A spokesperson for the Coastguard said “The alarm was raised at 1810 approximately and the Coleraine Coastguard Rescue Team, backed up by colleagues from Ballycastle, was sent to the scene.

NIAS personnel, including a Rapid Response Vehicle, were also quickly on scene. The injured youth was stabilised by Ambulance personnel before being stretchered to safety by the Coastguard team. This incident demonstrates again the need for caution near cliff edges and slopes.”
