Dive boat 'Aquanaut' sunk after being hit by freak wave off Salcombe, 12 rescued

Quote:
Twelve people have been rescued from the sea off Salcombe in Devon after their 40ft (12m) dive boat sank.

The divers from London let off a flare when a freak wave swamped their boat, Aquanaut, sinking it in about eight minutes off Bolt Head, on Saturday.
