rib death

any info

on radio solent it said a rib accident

Man dies after speedboat accident
One man has died and another is in a serious condition in hospital after being thrown from their speedboat.
Police have launched an investigation into the death following the incident off the Isle of Wight on Friday.

The two men, who have not been named, were dragged from the sea just off Yarmouth by the crew of a ferry.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary, which has asked for witnesses to come forward, said the circumstances of the accident were "unclear".

The two men, who had been on a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB), were spotted in the water by the crew of the Isle of Wight car and passenger ferry, Cenred, shortly after 1800 BST.

The Solent Coastguard helicopter was scrambled but before it and other rescue teams arrived at the scene, the ferry crew had picked the men up.

They were then transferred by a waiting ambulance to St Mary's Hospital.

i got this from the bbc news site

bit more from another news site..

Solent Coastguard was informed by the Isle of Wight car and passenger ferry 'Cenred' that the two men had been spotted in the water off Yarmouth at 6.12 pm this evening. The Coastguard requested the Coastguard helicopter India Juliet to scramble, the Needles Coastguard Rescue Team was tasked to attend the scene and the Yarmouth RNLI lifeboat was requested to launch. However, before the rescue resources arrived at the scene, the rescue boat from the ferry 'Cenred' was able to rescue the two men from the water. The rescue boat took the two into Yarmouth, where they were transferred by awaiting ambulance to St Marys Hospital.

Shortly afterwards, a 999 call was received in the Solent Coastguard operations room reporting that a speedboat had run aground at Pennington Marsh, west of Lymington. Two men had been seen being thrown clear of the speedboat which then circled several times before running aground. Following investigations by the Coastguard it was confirmed that the two men were the same people who had been picked up by the rescue boat.

Geoff Matthews of Solent Coastguard says: "Despite the lovely weather today, the sea is still very cold at ten degrees and these two men were lucky to have been rescued so quickly by the ferry rescue boat.

The Marine Accident Investigation Branch has been informed."

So no kill cord was worn then ?
And im assuming that the rib just hit a big wave at bad angle to launch them out of the boat?

one of the reports hints that it was the cold water that killed him - still early days yet to jump to any conclusions - a timely reminder to us all though.
