People are being urged to keep sufficiently hydrated and to wear sun block when taking to the waters of Lough Derg.
The advice from Peter Hooker – the Medical Advisor at Lough Derg RNLI – comes following a call out for the crew yesterday afternoon.
They were alerted at around 3.45pm of a young person said to be semi-conscious on a floating pontoon by Dromineer Harbour.
Two Advanced Paramedics from the Ambulance Service also attended – the casualty’s level of consciousness was found to have improved and he was speaking.
He was transferred to shore by the lifeboat volunteers.
