Rescuers save man off Donegal coast

A rescue operation is over on Lough Swilly after a man was taken from the sea onto the Lough Swilly Lifeboat and airlifted to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry.

The rescue was coordinated by the Malin Head Marine Rescue Centre, which is potentially facing closure following a review earlier this year.

The RNLI has praised Malin Head Coastguard Station's handling of the emergency saying the outcome might have been different had they not been involved.
