Callout 516

Posted on Saturday Sep 1, 2012

At 15:00 HMCG tasked both Ardboe & Kinnego lifeboats to a 15ft yacht sinking outside Kinnego bay with 2 persons onboard. The Kinnego harbourmaster boat was already on scene and assisted to take casualties off and onto a passing vessel as they kept the casualty vessel afloat until lifeboats arrived. Both lifeboats successfully re-floated the vessel and towed it into Kinnego Marina. Praise was given to the harbourmaster boat crew for their swift action. 2 persons rescued.
