1.30 hours at sea, 3 people were helped

Narrative

The lifeboat was called to a 5m boat, with three persons on board, adrift, off Cockenzie.

On arrival, a local rescue boat from Prestonpans had the vessel under tow, with two casualties remaining onboard.

These two males were taken onto the lifeboat, and the rescue boat and speedboat escorted back to Port Seton. There were no injuries amongst the speedboat crew, but they were cold.
