The fishing vessel Snowdonia sank near Kikeel Harbour, Ireland. The Snowdonia had sent out a distress call to the RNLI before the two crew abandoned ship before going into the water. Luckily, another fishing vessel was nearby and pulled the men from the cold water. The RNLIL lifeboat from Kikeeland and a Coast Guard helicopter were dispatched to the scene. The lifeboat reached the two men first providing aid to the men until the helicopter arrived. The men were airlifted and taken to hospital for treatment.
