LÉ Niamh comes to the aid of capsized boat in Cork Harbour

Two men were found standing on top of upturned craft, and brought back to shore for medical attention.

TWO MEN WERE rescued from a capsized boat in Cork earlier this evening by naval personnel.

The incident occurred in the east of Cork Harbour shortly after 6pm.

The LÉ Niamh received a distress call from the vessel and dispatched a boat to the scene, where two men were discovered standing on top of the upturned craft.

Both were brought back to Haulbowline, but neither showed any signs of injury and were reportedly in “good spirits”.

The boat they had been travelling in was towed back to shore by the Crosshaven Lifeboat.

In a separate incident yesterday, two men died after they got into difficulty while diving off west Cork.

Also yesterday, four people were rescued from a single beach in Wicklow.

After one woman was swept into a cave and was rescued by the RNLI, three others who had come to her aid all needed assistance.

Jedward were also rescued.
