That was at around 1pm,at Glenarm Marina.I don`t think it`s connected. Thanks anyway. Sadly the person did not survive. RIP

This is on high ground behind me, between Glenarm and Ballygally.

1910 A lot of spotlights have appeared at the top of the high ground in last 5 mins, possibly mountain rescue
Seems like someone may have fallen, the heli has returned to base.

I found this, but doesn`t have much information...

Seems to be a search of an area around a farm on very difficult terrain and horrible weather conditions.


NI Emergency Response Vids made a further post saying someone had fallen from a cliff.

Absolutely terrible day in Glenarm.

I have found out what happened, but it would not be fair to post details up here.
Doubtless it will be on the news at some point.
