Search for Missing Person (day 2)

Jun 19, 2008   //   by Admin   //   Callouts  //  No Comments

UPDATE: 19 June ’08

The unit assembled this morning at 07:00hrs for a shoreline search of the cliffs of Moher area. Early on in the search, a search team established a visual contact of the casualty in a large cave. Due to the sea state, a recovery attempt would not be attempted until 12:30 hrs [low tide] which may afford a better ‘weather window’. In slightly improved conditions, at low tide, a successful attempt was made to recover the body which was taken to Doolin Pier and handed over to attending Gardaí.
