Sunk boat

Recommended Posts

Apparently the man was 81.


Report here from Stuff says he was in the water at Hobbs Bay.

There was a very big squall went through yesterday about the time this incident started. I can only guess, but it wouldn't surprise me if the squall caused a problem with the boat. The gentleman was in the water and found by the police helicopter.

I saw the rescue helicopter circling in the area around Weiti / Okura a wee while after the squall. In hindsight it would have been involved in this search.
