Surging waters cause yacht and crew to sink in Brisbane

When the Orion broke free of its mooring and ran into floating debris, the damaged vessel began to take on water. Skipper Russell Bentley swam out and climbed on board to assess the damage. A friend sailed out to assist and both men were caught in the sinking boat.
As the yacht rolled over and sank, Bentley hit his head and was taken deep underwater. A nearby police boat later rescued both men.
