The two brothers were fishing from their kayak whey they capsized and were unable to get back into the kayak due to the amount of water it had taken onboard.
Thankfully they were fully equipped with all the safety equipment that is advised for sea users, and by using their flare and making a distress call on their handheld radio to the Coastguard, the lifeboat crew onboard Mudeford Servant managed to get to them in rapid time.
The brothers and all their equipment and kayak were safely returned to the station.
