RNLI/Coast Guard Rescues

Search and ‘rescued’

[Image: Sea_M_1743021a.jpg]

A HELICOPTER hovers a beach yesterday in the hunt for a missing six-year-old boy.
The Coast Guard helicopter from Strandhill, Co Sligo, and lifeboats from Bundoran and Killybegs scoured the waters off Rossnowlagh in Donegal.
Jet-skiers and surfers joined the search for the youngster reported missing by his grandparents. Swimmers were ordered out of the water as lifeboat crews attempted to make their search easier.
Just 50 minutes later the child, reported missing near the south end of the beach, was found by members of his family safe and well.

I know the Coast Guard here have it as two words but bizarrely it's in the dictionary as one word! It must be the spellcheck that corrects it!!

From Collins English Dictionary:British English: coastguard A coastguard is an official who watches the sea near a coast, in order to get help when it is needed and to prevent smuggling.ˈkəʊstˌɡɑːd NOUN

Smuggling?? Haven't done that course yet :-)

British Coastguard, US Coast Guard, Irish Coast Guard. Not sure why we went the American way, in fairness most countries it's 2 words.
