Man Survives Ferry Fall

The 20 year old had been sitting on a railing smoking a cigarette when he lost his balance. Resue efforts to save him were hampered by the simultaneus departure of the Tallink Romantica, while the current generated by the ferry’s propeller pushed him northwards. Help was at hand though from an alert diver in the area who swam out to save him. Both men were picked up by a small boat and treated for minor injuries.
