Two Spanish tourists saved from the Thames


AN RNLI lifeboat crew saved two Spanish tourists from drowning in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The lifeboat was launched from the Tower Bridge station at 1.30am Tuesday following a call to the Temple Pier area, where they successfully pulled the two drowning men to safety from the icy water.

They also rescued a local worker who had initially jumped in to help the tourists, but had got into difficulties himself. All three men were quickly taken to hospital, one suffering from hypothermia.
