In an exciting, newly released video, members of Britain’s Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Devon corral a runaway speedboat by lassoing it. It all started when 66-year-old Peter Channing, while docking in Teignmouth Quay accidentally hit the throttle and was thrown from his speedboat. Normally, Peter would’ve been wearing a kill cord, which cuts the engine if it’s detached from the boat, but his was too short, and he had to remove it to tie up the vessel. Luckily, the RNLI was there to lasso the boat to safety. Wild west on water!
