Pool chain ferry rescue (2009)

What was the outcome of this? Came across it by accident. You can tell by the force of water this is going to be a difficult rescue. Looks horrendous. Think I would have made the decision to get off and scramble onto the ferry. Easy in hindsight.

All were rescued safely I believe, not sure if one actually went under the ferry.
This happened a while back as its Poole's old Brede you can see in the back ground..... MAIB says it was May 2001.

Cheers Chewy. Was posted on Youtube from 2008, so thought it was from then. Glad everyone got rescued okay.
