A coastguard team was tasked to a medical emergency on Tory Island on Tuesday evening.
A patient was successfully transported from the island to Letterkenny University Hospital.
Details of the evacuation were shared on the new Rescue 118 Instagram page.
Describing the photo above, they said: “If you look carefully you can see the winch operator sticking his head out the bottom of the door. He is checking under the aircraft and conning the aircraft down to the pad.”
Following this operation, Medivac 118 were tasked to Co. Mayo for a RTC (Road Traffic Collision).
