Video: Portrush Lifeboat Station
Have you ever wondered the horrific conditions faced by our brave lifeboat volunteers when they get a call to a rescue?
These are the conditions which faced volunteers yesterday off the coast of Donegal.
The video was taken by members of the Portrush Lifeboat crew who rushed to aid colleagues from Lough Swilly LIfeboat and also Arranmore Lifeboat.
Gales of up to 60mph as well as heavy seas met the crews as they went to the aid of a crabber which lost power yesterday afternoon 20 miles off Fanad Head.
The brave men and women who man these lifeboat stations face these kinds of conditions on a regular basis.
We salute their bravery and thank them for keeping us safe at sea.
