Spectators to the incident said the victim looked 'distressed'.
Just happened upon the distressing sight of some poor divil (alive, but clearly in a bad state) being fished out of the river Liffey at Heuston Station Bridge. More than a dozen ambulance crew and fire brigade men working to get him out of the water. Hope he gets looked after.
