This is the dramatic moment 23 tourists are rescued after a speedboat capsized off a Thai island yesterday (February 7).
The group of holidaymakers were on a sight-seeing trip around Koh Samet off the coast of Rayong, eastern Thailand, when the vessel struck and coral reef and spun out of control.
The group were heard screaming as they battled to escape from the boat, which had rolled onto its side and was rapidly sinking.
Coastguards arrived at 2pm and rescued the group who were rushed to the shore.
Two of the tourists were injured.
Police are now investigating whether the owner of the tour company, Black Marlin, had a proper license to operate trips to the islands carrying tourists.
However, officers said the owner had fled and they had been unable to question him in the immediate aftermath of the accident.
The crash yesterday comes just six months after a ferry carrying Chinese tourists sank off the coast of Phuket, in southern Thailand, killing 47 holidaymakers.
