A fishing trip for British actress Jennifer Ellison nearly ended in disaster on Wednesday (21Aug13) after she and her husband were swept out to sea.
The Phantom of the Opera star and her husband Robbie Tickle were in their dinghy on Moelfre Bay in Wales when the engine died and they found themselves being thrashed about in high winds.
Lifeguards from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (Rnli) spotted the couple and a crew rushed out to help tow them back to safety.
Ellison, who gave birth to her second child last month (Jul13), says, "It was terrifying. The waves were so strong."
She later uploaded a video of the rescue on Twitter.com, along with the caption, "Just been sea fishing with my hubby!! Needed to be rescued!!! Terrifying! Thanks so much Rnli!"
