Arklow RNLI Rescue | Local fishing vessel towed to safety
In response to a call from a local fishing vessel, Arklow RNLI lifeboat launched yesterday afternoon to aid a vessel that had lost power and was adrift around 7 miles southeast of Arklow.
The lifeboat crew launched immediately and quickly located the vessel.
They established a tow line and the crew of three stayed on board their vessel as it was brought safety at Arklow harbour.
Speaking following the incident, Mark Corcoran, Volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer & Community Safety Officer said “All persons who take to the water whether for a living or for pleasure must always wear their lifejackets and should always have a means of raising the alarm”
