Search teams hope to recover Rescue 116 today

Search teams trying to reach the wreckage of Rescue 116 are hoping the weather will allow divers get to the site today.

Yesterday they were able to put a remotely operated vehicle into the water where it located the helicopter.

It’s sitting on the ocean floor about 40 metres below the surface – it’s now hoped the missing crewmen may be inside.

Fergus Sweeney a photo-journalist in the area says locals are getting some solace from providing support to the families.
