Irish Coast Guard Helicopters (S92 Search and Rescue) have had a busy early morning. The Waterford based Coast Guard helicopter, following the successful rescue of a lone yachtsman off the Wexford Coast late last evening, subsequently transferred a patient to the UK. The National Ambulance Service, (National Emergency Operations Centre), requested the assistance of the Coast Guard for the transportation of two separate patients to two different locations in the UK. The second of these missions was completed by the Dublin based Coast Guard helicopter.
