A person had sustained a lower leg injury while walking on the cliff path. Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue 116 was also tasked to the scene. The Howth CG station rescue boat 'Sean A Dunne' was exercising in Dublin bay and proceeded to the area to assist if required.
On arrival members of the ground unit transported the casualty in the Coast Guard cliff stretcher to the lighthouse access road where the ambulance was waiting. The helicopter was not required and was stood down.
