"All of a sudden, our tour guide Mike had gone and was headed for what looked to be a person who was struggling in the water but it actually turned out to be two men."

Mike, with the help of Dublin Fire Brigade, managed to lift the two men out of the water and onto the boat.

Stacy continued: "The whole group was confused more so than shocked as to what was going on.
