Three in hospital after sea rescue off Cork coast

Three in hospital after sea rescue off Cork coast

Three men in their 20s were last night being treated in hospital after they were rescued from the sea when their dinghy capsized off the west Cork coast yesterday evening.

The alarm was raised just before 5pm by a member of the public who heard the three shouting for help from the sea between Horse island and Audley Cove in Ballydehob.

It is understood that all three men, who didn't have lifejackets, were attempting to swim ashore after their boat capsized but were struggling in the strong flood tide.

All three, who are from the Skibbereen and Ballydehob areas, were last night still being treated at Cork University Hospital following the successful rescue operation.
