Three men rescued, Lyme Regis
THREE men were rescued after their motor boat collided with a buoy just outside Lyme Regis harbour.
One man was taken to hospital in Yeovil after taking in sea water, on Sunday morning, September 12.
Following the collision, two men clambered onto the buoy while the third stayed aboard the submerged 12 ft boat.
RNLI helmsman Brian Street said: “We picked up the man from the boat, then the other two – one of whom was in obvious distress.”
Crew brought the men ashore and later retrieved the boat.
