The Coastguard has issued an urgent warning over the dangers of currents around Portmuck Island following an alert this afternoon.
Portmuck Coastguard received a report of paddle boarders in difficulties at 3.10 pm.
A spokesperson said: “One made their own way ashore, the other two, who were sharing a board, stated they had paddled for 45 mins and were getting dragged out by the currents.
“One was rescued by a jet ski and the last person was rescued by Larne Inshore Lifeboat which was already out on a previous search for an inflatable which had been blown offshore from Ballygally.”
Portmuck Coastguard has stated that the dangerous currents around Portmuck Island are “unsuitable” for kayaks or paddle boards.
