A video posted on YouTube shows a police boat overturning during rescue operation in Australia.
The boat flipped in rough seas off a New South Wales beach sending the four policemen overboard. There were no reports of injuries but the boat remained stuck upside down about 50 metres out to sea abandoning the search and rescue operation.
Instead, the officers scrambled to salvage their equipment.
According to statement by the police, the incident was due to the rough weather with a spokeswoman describing the conditions as "messy."
