Following a planning process that began in late 2011, the CRS tonight began safety patrols in the area around the River Lagan in Belfast City Centre. This is the first step in an ongoing process to provide assistance to those in difficulty in that area. The CRS Belfast Unit is currently leading the way in providing this service in support of the police and other emergency services with the support of CRS members from around the province.

CRS Lagan Safety Patrols involved in rescue

At approximately 01.30 hrs this morning the CRS cycle team passed a young male walking away from a nearby nightclub. Once out of sight of the Patrol he entered the water at the rear of the Waterfront Hall. He was observed by a member of the public who telephoned 999. Police, Fire and Rescue and CRS converged ?on scene and the young man was coaxed from the River. CRS were able to use one of their thermal blankets (donated by Cardiac Services) to keep the casualty warm and the young man was later accompanied away from the location by Police. Well done to Belfast CRS and our friends and colleagues in the NIFRS and the PSNI for a successful outcome.
