Woman in critical condition after her car was submerged in a Fermanagh lake

The woman is in critical condition.

The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) confirmed this morning that a woman had been hospitalised after her vehicle became submerged in a lake.

The incident occurred at around 10.25pm on Saturday night, at Muckros Pier on the Boa Island Road in Kesh.

Three police officers were also treated in hospital following the rescue.

Inspector John Gordon said: “At around 10.25pm last night, Saturday 15 June, we received a report that a car may have entered the water at Muckros Pier on the Boa Island Road in Kesh.

"A nearby police patrol responded and the two officers onboard spotted the vehicle in the water. Both immediately entered the lake and managed to free the woman from the sinking car."

A third police officer also entered the water in order to verify that there was nobody else inside the car.

Gordon went on to say: "The woman was taken to hospital where her condition this morning is described as critical. I commend the brave actions of the police officers involved and my thoughts and prayers are with the female and her family this morning."
