Two men had to be rescued when they became stranded in mud at low tide in Newtown Creek on the Isle of Wight's northwestern coast.
The 19 and 20 year old had been canoeing when they got stuck. Their cries for help were heard by the crew of a moored yacht who alerted the Coastguard.
The lifeboat was launched from Cowes with the Needles mobile coastguards also responding.
The canoe was pulled off the mud and the men - neither of whom were wearing lifejackets, were taken onboard the lifeboat and warmed up. They were then taken to Yarmouth.
