The Ballyglass RNLI inshore lifeboat was requested to launch yesterday afternoon by the Irish Coast Guard to go to the assistance of 2 people on a jet ski in difficulty between Doolough and Claggan in Blacksod Bay. 

The volunteer lifeboat crew launched the lifeboat from Shore Road Belmullet within 10 minutes, and were on the scene within half an hour in favourable conditions.

Malin Head Coast Guard had been contacted when a jet ski capsized.

A rigid inflatable power boat in the area had taken the casualties aboard until the lifeboat arrived. Once on scene, the lifeboat crew took the uninjured jet ski crew aboard and proceeded to bring them safely to land at Doolough. 

No medical assistance was required.

The Ballyglass Coast Guard unit was also tasked to assist.
