Our crews from Antrim, Ardboe & Kinnego were tasked at 18:14 to an incident on the River Blackwater. 

Along with Lough Neagh Coastguard Rescue Team and Police Service of Northern Ireland, our crews quickly conducted a search of the river where we quickly located and recovered the body of a male.

We would like to thank our crews who, with great dignity and professionalism, were able to return this soul to his loved-ones and help bring closure for the grieving family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the gentleman’s family at this difficult time.
