Two are saved in separate north coast rescues

By Allan Preston

Rescue teams on the north coast have been deployed this week to save a man and a woman in separate incidents.

Yesterday afternoon the woman suffered a severely fractured ankle after a fall at Ballintoy Harbour.

Paramedics and rescue teams from Ballycastle and Coleraine responded to the distress call at 12.30pm.

She was taken by an ambulance to the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine.

Last Wednesday a massive search and rescue operation was launched at the harbour after the car of a missing east Belfast teacher, 39-year-old Catherine Johnston, was discovered there.

At the Giant's Causeway on Monday afternoon a 21-year-old Belgian tourist had to be airlifted to safety after getting stranded on the Chimney Stacks rock formation at the famous beauty spot.
