Family Rescued After Their Boat Bursts Into Flames

A family were forced to jump into shark infested waters after their boat burst into flames.

Five adults and a five-year-old child were trapped on their boat off Rottnest Island, Australia.

The fire, which started in the engine room, quickly engulfed the 15m boat causing all the passengers to jump into the Indian Ocean.

Despite the boat being completely destroyed, all passengers were successfully rescued by Fremantle Sea Rescue.
