Three rescued after Malin Head boat capsizes

Thomas Weir died along with his uncle in accident

16 year old Thomas Weir was from Scotland but had been living in Derry in recent months - while a third man in his 40's was also from Derry.

Conditions were good at the water but according to the Coast Guard the water would have been "very cold".

The man was recovered from the water and pronounced dead at the scene, while the teenager was airlifted to hospital and later died.

The boy and a man believed to be in his 50s were taken to Altnagelvin Hospital in Londonderry.

The teenager was from Derry, while the man was from Donegal.

It is understood the small boat left the area at about midday on Tuesday.

Sweden's Dantorp finishes fast to lead Scottish Open
Confidence snowballs in a good and bad way and obviously I'm on a good wave at the moment. "Hopefully I can keep riding it". Dantorp had fallen off the pace as he struggled for consistency as Stone excelled, but a birdie at the 16th proved crucial.

They had only travelled approximately half a mile out to sea when their vessel suddenly capsized.

It is understood all three had been in the water for three to four hours.

Gerry Doherty set off for a fishing trip along with 16 year old Thomas Weir and another man shortly after 9 yesterday morning.

An adult was rescued a short time later and he too was taken to hospital.

Tourists staying at a nearby cottage heard their cries for help and alerted local emergency services.

The search was co-ordinated by Malin Head Coastguard and involved two RNLI lifeboats from Lough Swilly, the Coastguard helicopter and a number of local boats.
