The Irish Coast Guard and Dublin Fire Brigade carried out an amazing rescue earlier today on Sandymount Strand.

A woman and her dog were out on the popular beach when they got caught on a sand spit that had formed due to the wind and tidal conditions.

Ricky Whelan, a Project Officer with Birdwatch Ireland, was carrying out a bird survey when he spotted the brave rescue from the emergency services.

Sharing pictures of the rescue online, he said: "Amazing what you see during bird surveys. A lady and her dog just got plucked from a sand spit on Sandymount Strand by the Irish Coast Guard and Dublin Fire Brigade. Must have been a terrifying experience. Gotta be careful on a rising tide!"

Dublin Fire Brigade said that units from Donnybrook, Tara Street and the rescue boat responded alongside the RNLI in Dun Laoghaire, Dun Laoghaire Coast Guard and Rescue 116 from the Irish Coast Guard.
