Boat rescue 2

Towing another boat for repair, the tow boat's engined failed. The river was flooded and the water was racing into a culvert--a drain tunnel--between two factory units with a supplies walkway above. My passenger and I would have been injured, or possibly faced loss of life, had we remained. I jumped off of the boats holding the ropes that were tied to the railings. The rope got twisted around my arm. I screeched for help and a young man realised how bad of a situation we were in and raced across the bridge and saved the day.

My clothes had been ripped off of me and my arm was badly damaged by the ropes. Again, our saviour left the scene by the time the 999 emergency crews arrived. I would have lost my arm, at the very least, but it was beautifully sewn back on by the NHS A&E. Despite all, I still live by the water and love boats!!! What a fool.
