** Person Attempting to Enter Water **
At 17.38hrs this evening the Boyne Fishermen's Rescue & Recovery Service emergency paging system was activated to the reports of a person Attempting to Enter the Water from the Doners Green area of the river Boyne.
We dispatched our inshore rescue boat and scene crew to the location of the incident.
As the scene crew arrived on scene they observed a male sitting on the edge of the wall at the end of Doners green.
Crews trained in suicide prevention awareness managed to maintain a stable situation until the arrival of Drogheda Gardai where a handover was given.
Crews were stood down returning to base to wash,restage and fuel the equipment.
