Devastated at Coast Guard loss - Rescue 116 crew saved my life
When I travelled to work on Wednesday morning I was left totally lost for words as the early morning news announced the disappearance of Search and Rescue 116 based at Dublin Airport.
As I write this letter I am still struggling to find the right words to express my profound sadness at the tragic loss of life.
Why do I feel such sadness? Well, the reason is very simple: I myself was picked up by the search-and-rescue crew of 116 on July 22, 2014.
