The Howth CG team along with Coast Guard Rescue 116 were mobilised this afternoon following a request from Dublin Fire Brigade for assistance with transferring a casualty on the Upper Cliff Path in Howth. The team arrived on the scene along with Rescue 116 who lowered their winch man.
The casualty was prepared for evacuation to the helicopter by DFB and CG personnel. A High Line was deployed by Howth CG to the winchman to maximise stability of the winch. The casualty was transferred to Tallaght Hospital.
