Fisherman rescued after boat capsizes
A man has been rescued off the coast of Motueka this afternoon after his boat overturned.
The Nelson Marlborough rescue helicopter was called out after an emergency beacon was activated.
The 7-metre aluminium crab fishing boat was found 100 metres off shore near the Port Motueka bar at about 1.30pm. The man was found further out, clinging to floating items.
A nearby boat collected the man who was then taken to shore. He was uninjured.
