Trio saved after boat capsizes
Sunday 15 April 2012
It was a case of three men out of, rather than in, a boat when a trio had to be rescued by lifeboat crews after their craft capsized during a drinking trip.
The three had been drinking with two other men on a moored fishing boat in the middle of the River Wear in Sunderland. However, when they tried to get back to shore on a small service boat, it capsized, leaving them in the water.
Two Sunderland RNLI lifeboats were launched shortly before 3.10am yesterday after Humber Coastguard received a 999 call from the fishing boat reporting the three men were struggling in the water near Wearmouth Bridge. The trio were helped aboard and were then taken to Sunderland Royal Hospital suffering from the early signs of hypothermia.
