Solomons police rescue eight passengers at sea
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 21 July 2018
“The police in Solomon Islands rescued eight people at sea after their boat experienced engine troubles in bad weather.
“The 21-foot boat was carrying school teachers between Savo and Ngella in Central Province in rough weather, when its engine broke down.
“The provincial police commander, Superintendent Patricia Leta, says they received a call out at 6pm on Thursday and a rescue team was deployed.
“The boat was found near Bungana Island, and the passengers were safely brought to the Tulagi Police Station.
“Ms Leta is asking the public to ensure their engines are properly serviced, and to not travel in bad weather.
"Do not travel during bad weather because you will be risking your life if any problem happens at sea during your trip," she said.”
