106 people rescued by Tower Lifeboat on Great River Race

Lifeboat crew members from Tower RNLI lifeboat station in central London had a phenomenally busy Saturday when they were involved in rescuing a total of 106 people who were participating in a rowing race on the River Thames.

The majority of people assisted were either in the water after their ‘dragon boat’ had already sunk or capsized, or were in danger of sinking and being plunged into the icy depths of the river.
