Dramatic rescue as boat gets caught under ferry

This footage captures a dramatic rescue as a boat gets caught under a ferry. Two lifeboats were called on June 21 to a report that a 24ft yacht was pinned against a chain ferry. The shrimper, which had two people on board, had become entangled with the chain ferry on the inside of Poole’s harbour entrance. The combination of the tide and the wind hampered any chance of the vessel getting free. RNLI volunteers managed to free the two vessels, and no one was harmed in the incident.
