    Six boaties have been rescued from their sinking vessel by passers-by off the coast of Northland

    Six boaties have been rescued from their sinking vessel by passers-by off the coast of Northland


    Police were called after a boat smashed into rocks in Kowharewa Bay north-east of Whangarei, around 4.30pm.

    A spokeswoman says the people onboard were rescued and taken to shore by locals in the area.

    It's unclear whether the boaties were pulled from the water, or plucked off the vessel before it sank.
