first_imgSLIGO RESCUE HELICOPTER AT LETTERKENNY GENERAL HOSPITAL (donegaldaily.com)THE ROSBEG man who saved three children in a dramatic sea rescue yesterday was hailed a hero today by friends and relatives.Paul Harkin, who now lives in the North, was home for a few days when he went to the rescue of the children.Another man – Kieran Harkin – who isn’t related rescued a fourth child. Kieran was later taken to Letterkenny General Hospital. Paul’s sister-in-law Susie told us: “Paul saved three of the children. Although he and Kieran have the same surname they are not related. The 4th child was saved by Keiran who is the child’s uncle. Only Keiran was airlifted to Letterkenny …. no children.“Two female lifeguards came from Portnoo Strand and got into difficulties. They were rescued by local men in their rib.“There are several local heroes, especially Paul, who are not being recognised.”Local man Patsy Harkin (who isn’t related to the families involved) took his boat out and helped bring several people to shore including the lifeguards. Added Susie: “At the end of the day, thank God everyone survived. Without these men it most certantly would have been a different story.” REVEALED: LOCAL HERO WHO SAVED CHILDREN IN SEA DRAMA was last modified: August 3rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:REVEALED: LOCAL HERO WHO SAVED CHILDREN IN SEA DRAMAlast_img read more
