The jeep was filling with waterTHE tide was coming in thick and fast.And with every second that passed, more water poured into an expensive jeep as it remained sunk in the sands at Ballyheirnan Beach, Fanad.The owner had reversed his vehicle into the water, with a Jetski on the trailer. But the unforgiving sands gave way – and the owner began to get that sinking feeling.To the rescue came the kind-hearted owner of a transit van who reversed into position – and promptly became stuck too.Tractors were sent for and calls were made.However local people arrived and managed to attach a rope to the jeep and pull it ashore, water flowing back out of the vehicle from the rear doors. Job done, attention turned to the van.And ironically the jeep came to the rescue, tying a rope to the van and towing it towards drier, safer sands.Just another day at the beach!STUCK! THE VAN WHICH WENT TO THE RESCUE GETS SUCKED INTO THE SANDSHOT! LOCALS HELPED AND HELPED…. PANIC OVER:  RELIEF FOR MOTORIST AS €30,000 JEEP RESCUED FROM RISING TIDES ON BEACH was last modified: July 15th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:000 JEEP RESCUED FROM BEACHBallyheirnan beachFanadRELIEF FOR MOTORIST AS €30last_img
