A man in his early 20s has been taken to hospital after falling 12 metres from a cliff face in Co Antrim.
The incident happened on Monday in Murlough Bay, a scenic area located on the north coast.
Ballycastle and Coleraine coast guards were tasked to the scene, having received a call at around 1pm.
They were accompanied by the Rescue 199 helicopter which made its way from Prestwick in Scotland, as well as the Air Ambulance and a ground ambulance crew.
The injured man was transferred to Belfast City Airport by helicopter, and then brought onward to Royal Victoria Hospital to be treated for rib and pelvic injuries, a Coast Guard spokesperson said.
