A man who was rescued 4km from the shore after getting in trouble while swimming has been identified as Ruairí McSorley - better known as the 'Frostbit Boy' from a certain viral video. You can see the clip below:
McSorley told the Irish Independent he was feeling '100 percent' after spending 12 hours at sea on Sunday and becoming 'dangerously hypothermic'.
The 24-year-old had been staying at a caravan park near Inch beach in County Kerry, when he decided to take an early morning swim out to Fenit island, saying it was a 'spur of the moment' idea.
However, the alarm was raised at 8am after someone found his clothes and shoes on the shore.
Fenit RNLI responded and were shocked to find him alive and surrounded by dolphins miles out at sea.
Fenit RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager Gerard O'Donnell said McSorley was a 'very lucky individual' and advised against swimming in the water.
McSorley was taken to University Hospital Kerry in Tralee, but has since been discharged.
Speaking to the Irish Independent, McSorely praised his rescuers.
He said: "They're very professional and very slick. They're incredible people, I have to say.
"They aren't like doctors or paramedics - paid professionals. They're volunteers.
"They're definitely a great group of people, there's no doubt.
"They wrapped me up in the blankets and took my body temperature and everything and then just rushed me into the hospital."
He went on to say he was absolutely fine following the scary experience.
"There's no victim mentality there," he continued. "Other than a bit of pain at the back of my knee, I'm 100 percent. There's no long-term damage.
"The only thing was my kidneys needed to readjust, so there has been no serious harm. It was only a matter of going into the hospital to heat up a bit. Other than that, I was fine."
He went on to say that he'd even had a bit of a joke with the RNLI, asking them: "I'll not have to pay for this, will I?"
This isn't the first time McSorely has hit headlines - back in 2015 a clip of him talking about getting to school in the snow went viral.
A teenage McSorely was asked what he thought about his journey to school in the freezing cold temperatures to which he replied: "You wouldn't be long getting frostbit."
From there, he became a bit of an overnight sensation with his interview racking up millions of views.
