Ten spend five hours in the water after boat capsizes.

An extensive search by the RNLI lifeboat and Saltee Islands passenger ferry found the upturned hull of a missing boat off the coast of Wexford, Ireland. Ten persons were rescued from the water after their 18ft boat became swamped and capsized in choppy seas. The ten included one woman, eight men and a boy, all had been wearing lifejackets. The Irish Coastguard helicopter transferred one man in his 70’s to Waterford University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
