Two fishermen and an electrician from Bandon are being hailed as heroes after saving a woman from a sinking car in Cork city.

The dramatic incident on Kennedy Quay took place shortly after midday when a car entered the water.

The crew of two fishing boats jumped into the water, broke the rear window of the car and rescued a woman before the car sank.

Farid Langens from Belgium is one of the men who jumped into the water after they saw the car pass their boat.

He told RedFM News what unfolded next:

"I couldn't catch it because because of the current, so we ran up to the next ship. Luckily, the car bounced against the ship in the front, so we had time to jump on the ship, and take a rope with the hook and then I jumped into the water to hook to the car so it couldn't drift further. Then somebody smashed the rear window. A woman was inside. We asked her if she was okay and if she was alone. She was okay".
