Coast Guard rescue jet skier off Ireland's Eye

The man was located with his jet ski submerged under the water and brought back to shore

The Irish Coast Guard has rescued a man from the water just north of Ireland’s Eye in Dublin.

The coast guard emergency operations centre in Dublin received reports of a missing jet skier this afternoon at 3:300pm.

The Rescue 116 Helicopter was immediately dispatched alongside the Howth RNLI lifeboats.

After about 30 minutes combing the water and coastline, the helicopter located the man with his jet ski submerged under the water.

Howth lifeboats brought the jet skier back to shore to a waiting ambulance.

The man was wearing a life jacket and did not have any serious injuries.

The Coast Guard also assisted a person back to safety on the East Pier in Howth as high tides and breaking waves put walkers in danger of being washed out to sea.

Members of the public were advised not to walk on the pier until the weather conditions had passed.
