The moment a jet skier who got into trouble in Stonehaven Bay was rescued has been captured on camera.
The town’s lifeboat crew were paged at 8.46pm on Sunday by Aberdeen Coastguard.
They launched the Atlantic 75 ‘Miss Betty’ with three crew on board and made speed to the stricken skier.
A lifeboat spokesman said: “On arrival, it was discovered that his jet ski had broken down and he was unable to make his way back to shore.
“The crew set up a tow and assisted the skier aboard the lifeboat. They then towed the ski back to the harbour.
“The casualty was uninjured but very grateful to the crew for there assistance. The boat was then refuelled and made ready for service once again.”
