Members of the Dublin Fire Brigade have been praised for saving a man's life in southern Spain.
The team were at a conference in Seville and returning to Málaga Airport on Sunday, when they saw a seriously injured motorcyclist on the A92 motorway.
The middle-aged man was unconscious with multiple injuries and could not breathe.
The officers were able to cordon off the scene, and performed critical interventions on him.
The team of six paramedics managed to stabilise the man.
Spanish emergency services have said this stopped him having respiratory failure and a cardiac arrest.
One of the team actually has specific training and experience of motorcycling injuries from race events.
A Spanish team arrived shortly afterwards and took over his care.
"These kind of stories happen when the vocation for public service has no limit and goes further more. Thanks a lot mates," Seville's Emergency Services wrote on Twitter.
