This was the dramatic moment a lifeboat crew lassoed a runaway speedboat in Devon.
An RNLI spokesperson said a sailor was trying to tie up his boat when he accidentally knocked the throttle and was thrown overboard.
He said the man had already unclipped the kill cord, a safety device that attaches to the skipper's leg, and pushed the throttle lever to full power as he fell into the water.
The six metre-long speedboat began to circle Devon's Teignmouth Quay, where a member of the public raised the alarm.
The RNLI spokesman said the lifeboat crew managed to get a line aboard the spinning boat, reach the throttle lever and reduce the speed.
He said the boat's owner managed to get ashore and was taken by ambulance to hospital.
