Man Rescued In Runaway Speedboat Drama

A man in Australia has been rescued after falling from his out-of-control speedboat off the coast of Perth.

A television news helicopter spotted the man swimming in the water with the speedboat spinning in circles just metres away.

They immediately called for Australia's Water Police to help him.#

Helicopter pilot Brett Campany said: "I actually thought it was a whale.

"I thought it was a bit late for whale season but I thought there is nothing breaking here. It just looked really strange."
