Night rescue of man in water by St Mary’s Battersea

A man has been saved by Chiswick RNLI lifeboat crew who pulled him from the River Thames at Battersea where he was clinging onto a houseboat mooring chain.

The lifeboat was led by a beam from a police helicopter to the man who was placed on board and handed to ambulance staff waiting on the slipway by St Mary’s Church.

The man’s injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

The film from on board can be seen here.
