Two people have died after being rescued from the sea off Malin Head in Co Donegal earlier today. Three people were taken from the water this afternoon after a small fishing boat capsized in the area. A 16-year-old boy who was airlifted to Altnagelvin Area Hospital in Derry died there tonight and a man in his 60s who was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital has also died. It is not known what caused the 15ft vessel to capsize. The search was co-ordinated by Malin Head Coastguard and involved two RNLI lifeboats from Lough Swilly, the Coastguard helicopter and a number of local boats.
