*** Volunteers rescued a female from the River Suir at 9:30 p.m. this evening. ***
While on exercise tonight, our rescue boat crew spotted a person in the water and immediately went to the person’s aid. The female had entered the river intending to take her life by suicide.
The casualty was taken by our rescue boat to our base at Neptune Marina where we were promptly met by An Garda Síochána, Waterford Ambulance Service and Waterford City Fire Service. Thank you as always to Irish Coast Guard for coordinating the incident.
Remember, you are not alone, there is help out there
