DUBLIN FIRE BRIGADE was called to Howth last night after a trawler reported that a crewman had fallen and injured himself.

The skipper of an Egyptian fishing vessel fell from the deck when he was throwing out nets to dry them.

On the fall down to the lower deck he caught his leg and broke his ankle.

The fire brigade told TheJournal.ie that it was very difficult to get him off the vessel.

The 38-year-old was taken to hospital with his injuries.

It happened at the ice factory at Howth Harbour at around 7:20 pm.

Advanced paramedic interns and an ambulance from Finglas responded to the 999 call.
