Volunteer Life Boaters Save Teenagers

 

Updated : Aug 6, 2009

A volunteer lifeboat crew member in the North risked his life twice last night to save the lives of two teenage boys.

They were marooned in a sea cave with waves breaking over their heads when he swam in twice to rescue them.

The two boys had been missing for several hours when the alarm was raised.

The Portrush lifeboat found them on an incoming tide almost out of their depth in a sea cave and a crew member tried to swim in with lifejackets.

He was beaten back by the waves and a second volunteer member, mechanic Anthony Chambers, swam into the cave twice eventually bringing them to safety.

The boys, aged 13 and 14, were then taken to hospital by helicopter where they were treated for hypothermia and shock.

Portrush Lifeboat manager Robin Cardwell said the boys were very lucky to be alive and the crewman's actions had undoubtedly saved them.
