The car being rescued

Have your say

This Nissan four-wheel drive got an unexpected dunking in Port St Mary.

Only the roof of the car could be seen after the launch of a rigid inflatable boat from the slipway near Isle of Man Yacht Club went wrong on Friday.

To recover the vehicle ā€“ fitted with a trailer ā€“ a man wearing a snorkel had to go underwater to attach a tow rope before a tractor was used to pull it out of the sea and back to safety.

These pictures were taken by Isle of Man Newspapersā€™ chief photographer John Maddrell.
