Ballyglass Coast Guard Unit were tasked with a callout this morning by MRSC Malin following a request from NAC.
A hill walker had fallen ill while walking along the coastline between Blacksod lighthouse and Faulmore.
Once on scene the local HSE paramedics and Coast Guard personnel attended to the casualty.
Due to difficult terrain and no road access, Ballyglass Coast Guard requested the assistance of the Rescue 118 helicopter.
When the helicopter arrived, the casualty was brought on board and was taken to hospital for further treatment.
