As officers approached the boat, they noticed that it was sinking and its occupants were unable to steer it to safety.
Its occupants were also suffering symptoms of disorientation, dizziness and exhaustion.
They were pulled to safety on to the police boat and officers towed the inflatable boat to the Ambolo cove.
