Drunk sailors rescued in Devon as boat hits lighthouse 'like a pinball'
Three drunk holidaymakers have been rescued after losing control of their boat in the sea off the south Devon coast.
A member of the public alerted coastguards to their troubled 27ft vessel near Teignmouth on Friday night.
According to the BBC, the coastguards said the boat was seen 'acting like a pinball' , drifting without power and smashing into a lighthouse.
It started filling up with water before being towed to safety by the Teignmouth lifeboat.
The coastguards confirmed the people on board had been drinking.
So there's a lesson to be learnt here - don't sip and sail!
