A small boat with tourists on board got stuck on the stones under the Świętokrzyski bridge. A river patrol of the capital city guard intervened on the spot.

According to the press release of the city guard, officers from the river patrol heard a scream of a woman near the cross-city bridge. A little further on, they noticed a tourist boat that got stuck on the stones under the Świętokrzyski bridge, off the shipping route.

“There were four people on board. River patrol officers came to their aid. Using a mooring line, they safely pulled the boat out to open water” – the rangers inform.

It turned out that the helmsman, seeing another vessel sailing nearby, was afraid that he might hit it. He accelerated too fast and lost control of the boat. – The passengers of the boat were very scared, but fortunately no one was hurt – says junior inspector Zbigniew Lipiński from the river patrol of the city guard, quoted in the message.
