A WOMAN has been airlifted to hospital after a kayaking accident off the Donegal coast.
Killybegs Coast Guard teams tasked today at 4pm by Malin Head Coast Guard to St John’s Point, Dunkineely.
“A female kayaker had sustained a nasty leg injury while making her way ashore,” said Killybegs CG spokesman Brian Smith.
The Rescue 118 helicopter later airlifted the casualty to Sligo General Hospital.
This was Killybegs Coast Guard’s second call out in two days as they attended to a yacht which had run aground on Fintra beach yesterday evening.
