The Lucan twins were stranded at sea
Pop duo Jedward took time to visit the Coast Guards who saved their lives in a sea rescue.
The X Factor stars were rescued by the Skerries Coast Guard last week, after getting stranded.
John and Edward Grimes showed their gratitude to the team this week, meeting with local volunteers back on Donabate beach.
Volunteer Vanessa Gaffney said it was difficult to find the famous twins when they got the emergency call:
“The tide was coming in, they really hadn’t much time left. We were mobilised by the Coast Guard’s Maritime Operations centre in Dublin.
“But the only location we had was Donabate beach, which goes on for several miles. And it was pitch black, which made it very hard to locate them.,” she told the Sun.
Edward added that the pair started to seriously panic:
“What was really freaking us out was we had our little cousin with us who couldn’t swim.
“The water was coming in and things were getting quite serious.”
Thankfully a Coast Guard helicopter arrived and saved the boys.
“We owe our lives to them,” the twins said.
