Incredible lucky rescue

Looks like 2 INCREDIBLY lucky guys here. 1 I believe was in the upturned tug for a long time (an hour!) before it rolled over and was dramatically rescued just before it sank!
I think this could be one of our own Ribnet members or one of his colleagues. Just really glad it looks like a very good ending.....
Wishing all involved well!.
