Burnham lifeboat called to help
drifting powerboat in Bridgwater Bay
Atlantic 75 lifeboat was called out on Saturday October 15th after
the power boat pictured above got into difficulties in Bridgwater
called on the Staines Whitfield lifeboat to assist the
power boat after it suffered
power failure and began to
drift out of the bay.
Minutes later, however, the lifeboat was recalled when another
craft came to the aid of the power boat and helped it back to
the town's jetty.
lifeboat returned to its station in Pier Street without launching.
