Dramatic rescue by Coastguard chopper saves two

Two fishermen whose 17ft Dory, Hell Raiser, capsized off the Isle of Man were rescued by the Irish Coastguard helicopter.

They had been clinging to the bottom of the craft for a day and a night and were spotted by the P&O ferry, European Seafarer which runs between England and Northern Ireland.

The Coastguard were alerted after the men, from Fife, failed to return from a day’s fishing.
