Cllr Cara McShane said:

“A man was rescued after falling from the Elephant rock, located between Ballintoy harbour and Whitepark Bay.

“While his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, I want to commend the speedy response of all the emergency services in attending to the casualty and bringing him safely to Causeway hospital.
