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.

They immediately called for Australia's Water Police to assist him as his boat spun in circles just metres from where he was swimming.

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."
