Dramatic footage has emerged of a fishing boat rapidly sinking after it began taking on water in the Irish Sea.
Two fishermen from County Down were rescued by another vessel in the incident which was captured on camera by rescuers last Tuesday.
Bad weather had forced the Snowdonia to sail to Ardglass harbour but it was hit by a big wave.
"We just went up on a wave and the back of the boat went into the water and she just never came back - she just went down that quick," said captain Stephen Kearney.
As the ship sank, one man became entangled in a rope and was close to being dragged down by it.
The men were in the water for 10 minutes as strong tides kept pushing them away from the nearby Tribute.
Rescuers managed to drag them aboard, and they were eventually airlifted to hospital by the Irish coastguard.
Mr Kearney says he will return to the sea to continue fishing within a few weeks, and thanked the rescuers for saving their lives.
