RNLI releases dramatic footage of speedboat rescue

The RNLI has released dramatic footage of the moment Teignmouth lifeboat crew stopped an out-of-control speedboat and rescued a man.

The man fell aboard from his speedboat earlier this month, knocking the throttle and putting the boat into a spin. The volunteer crew raced to the scene and managed to stop it. The man, who was wearing a lifejacket, was rescued and taken to hospital as a precaution.

The pictures, courtesy of the RNLI, show the moment the crew lasso the boat and manage to switch off its endless spiral.
