A woman whose car plunged into a marina yesterday was rescued from waters 20ft deep by a yachtsman who grabbed his scuba gear and dived in after her.

Stuart Bowen-Davies, 37, dived into the water and shared his oxygen with Manjusta Chopra before freeing her from the car. She was not breathing when he brought her to the surface but was revived with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Mrs Chopra, 36, had been helping her father-in-law, Jiwan Chopra, jump- start his Ford Granada outside his home in Calshot Court, which backs on to the Ocean Village marina in Southampton when her car accidentally shot through metal barriers. She was rushed to Southampton General Hospital, where last night she was reported to be in a stable condition.
