The Coast Guard Helicopter “Rescue 116” was dispatched and in difficult weather conditions got the winchman paramedic on board. The paramedic managed to stabilise the patient, due to the sea state and the location of casualty it was considered the safest option for the trawler to head to shore, with the Coast Guard paramedic remaining on board, and the casualty be extracted with extra assistance from shore.
The Irish Coast Guard Rescue team from Howth, a Dublin Fire Brigade unit from Kilbarack and a HSE ambulance from Swords were tasked to attend the West Pier in Howth. Between the multiple agencies the casualty, who was now conscious, was successfully extracted by stretcher through narrow hatches to the deck and onto the pier. From there he was transported by ambulance to Beaumont hospital.
