Brave teenager rescues sheep stuck in rocks off Ireland's coast

A teenager in Ireland risked his life to save a sheep that was trapped in some rocks off Gweedore's coast on August 6.

A video showed the 17-year-old helping the stranded sheep over the rocks and through the deep waters before it manages to climb up and back into a nearby field.

"So he is at the beach in Gweedore and for 20 minutes he can hear loud screaming. He just couldn’t rest. So eventually he discovered it was a sheep trapped in rocks and water and without thinking he stripped off and saved that sheep’s life," said the boy's mum.

"It has his father behind the camera, his brother shouting funny random things and the friend they were staying with in Donegal on holiday," she added.
