As the country is being battered by high winds, snow and flooding during storm Emma, a video shows a woman being rescued while swimming in extreme conditions. The footage was taken in the Sandycove area of Dublin and shows the woman struggling with the force of the huge waves while trying to grab on to a life ring tossed in by onlookers. The woman entered the water with the intention of swimming as the person who filmed the footage confirmed.
The Red Weather Warning has been extended by Met Éireann until 9 am tomorrow in counties Dublin, Kildare, Meath, Wexford and Wicklow.
