Tower RNLI save man from Rotherhithe, deliver to Wapping

By on March 29, 2015 in News

Tower RNLI have been their usual busy selves, this time saving a man who somehow got entangled in chains on the wrong side of the river railing in Rotherhithe just opposite Wapping. Here’s the video:

As you can see the RNLI crew manoeuvred the lifeboat under the man just in time to untangle his legs from the chains and then catch him as he fell into the boat.

Then it was a short trip across the River Thames to the pier of Wapping’s very own Marine Police Unit (MPU) where he was disembarked onto the pier and looked after.
