The trawler Amy Jane sank off Malin Head, County Donegal, Ireland while fishing for crab. The trawler began to take on water fast requiring all six crew to abandon ship. The crew, in their survival suits, activated the distress beacon and evacuated to the liferaft. The RNLI lifeboats from Lough Swilly and Portrush headed towards the scene. A rescue helicopter from Slingo reached the scene first and winched all six men to safety. The Portrush lifeboat took the liferaft under tow to avoid it becoming a hazard. No reports of injuries.
