Neil spoke to Kevin O’Sullivan who has been hailed as a hero after he jumped into the River Lee on Friday night to save Lorraine who had thrown herself in after ‘wanting to end it all’.
Neil also spoke to Lorraine who has been struggling with alcohol issues for a few years. Her drinking increased over lock down and on Friday she felt she’d had enough and decided to throw herself into the River Lee. She instantly regretted it and was saved by Kevin who was passing by. ‘Kevin is forever my hero. If he hadn’t have jumped in, I would have died’.
