Marinewatch thanked by a man they saved


A MAN whose life was saved by Wexford Marinewatch volunteers returned to the place where he so nearly lost his life to thank them.

Founder member of Wexford Marinewatch Frank Flanagan said the volunteers were approached by on the bridge last week by someone 'we had intervened with a few years ago'.

'At that time, this person was in a very dark place and had come down to the bridge to end it all. They had spoken with our trained volunteers that night and shown that no matter how bad or hard things get, suicide was not the answer.

'This person subsequently went on to get help and thankfully today is in a much better place with their life back on track.

'He still took the time out to come back and thank our volunteers - something which we are very grateful for. It means a lot to us, and makes the long hours and bad weather all worthwhile,' said Frank.

Remember you are never alone, don't let things get on top of you. Call the Pieta House helpline on 1800 247247 or the Samaritans at 116123.
