1 Mins read

In a social media post a spokesperson for Coleraine Coastguard said

“At 1520 approx on the 20th August Coleraine Coastguard Team was tasked to the Blue Pool area of Portrush to assist the Ambulance Service with the extraction of a teenage boy who had been injured during a rock-diving accident. The injured teenager was carried by stretcher to a waiting Ambulance by the Coastguard Team.

Immediately on finishing at this incident, the Coleraine were retasked to Ballycastle to back up the local Coastguard Team who were assisting a despondent male at risk. The casualty was eventually taken into the care of PSNI Officers.

Shortly after 1930 the Coleraine Coastguard Team was paged along with Ballycastle Coastguard, following a 999 report of a father and son cut off by the tide at Portbradden. Portrush Lifeboat was also launched. Coastguard Rescue Officers from both Coleraine and Ballycastle Teams entered the water and brought the stranded anglers to safety.

At 0250 on the 21st August Coleraine and Ballycastle Coastguard Teams were again tasked, along with Portrush Lifeboat crews to Portballintrae, following a report of a missing teenager. The 15 year old casualty was located safely on the beach to the west of the Harbour.”
