Three men picked up
Three men were picked up by the Central Coast Lifeboat on Saturday, September 17, after the Marine Rescue Central Coast received a report from a local resident of an overturned vessel in Maitland Bay and persons floundering in the water.
The Central Coast Lifeboat was on a training exercise at the time near Lion Island in Broken Bay around 11am.
On arrival at Maitland Bay, the rescue boat saw three Asian men and an upturned Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) on the shore.
According to Marine Rescue public relations officer Mr Ron Cole, conditions "were dangerous and there was a large amount of kelp in the water".
The unharmed men were picked up by the NSW Maritime vessel and their boat was towed to Ettalong.
