The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has offered his condolences following this morning’s incident at the beach in Ballycastle.
Councillor Sean Bateson said: “News of this tragedy has been met with profound shock and sadness, and my prayers are with the victim’s family and friends as they come to terms with their loss. No one could have predicted the awful events which unfolded at the beach this morning, a place where many people go to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the landscape, all year round. I want to commend our emergency services who attended the scene and were faced with such a difficult situation, as well as those members of the public who came to the aid of those involved and did all they could to help. At this time our thoughts are with the second swimmer who remains in hospital, and I pray she goes on to make a full recovery from this dreadful ordeal.”
