Life-saving equipment returned to Dublin Fire Brigade; Appeal renewed for other stolen device

Update 4.09pm: Dublin Fire Brigade says some of its life-saving equipment stolen from a pub in Cabra has been returned.

The rescue saw was handed into Phibsborough Fire Station this afternoon.

It's still missing another device, which was robbed as paramedics helped someone having a heart attack at the weekend.

Dublin's Lord Mayor, Nial Ring, is asking whoever took it to give the rest of it back.

"I would appeal to the people, as Lord Mayor of Dublin, please give back that life-saving equipment," he said.

"If you have a heart attack in Dublin, it's the second safest city in the world after Seattle because of the quality of our equipment and, more importantly, the quality of our senior paramedics."
