    Lifejackets played a major role in preventing a more serious incident in Wellington this morning

    Lifejackets played a major role in preventing a more serious incident in Wellington this morning


    Just after 9am, Police received reports of two people in the water close to a sinking ski boat at Lambton Harbour.

    The Wellington Police Maritime Unit responded and rescued the two teens, aged 16 and 17.

    They were both wearing lifejackets and had a portable marine VHF radio, although this was lost in the water.

    Sergeant Richard Kennedy says it was fortunate and reminds people to always make sure to wear a life jacket.

    He says it's also a great idea to take a waterproof cell phone or a phone in a sealed plastic bag.
