The Rescue 118 helicopter and Bunbeg Coast Guard were tasked to the scene.

It was a busy day for the Coast Guard today as they responded to reports of a person in difficulty in the water off Sliabh Liag today also. In addition, the rescue service was also involved in a medical evacuation from Inishbofin in both Donegal and Galway.
