Crew rescued from sinking trawler

The crew-members of the Ardglass-registered boat, the Snowdonia, were rescued by another trawler. The two men on board escaped uninjured, but as this video shows they were extremely lucky.

The fishermen were later airlifted to hospital after their trawler sank nearly 10 miles from shore. A lifeboat from Kilkeel assisted in the effort to help the men.

The footage was posted on YouTube by Airidas Grabauskas.
