From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 7 March 2019

A man who fell off his yacht off the coast of Gisborne was rescued after three hours in the water yesterday. A co-ordinated effort by the Hawke's Bay Rescue Helicopter, the Royal New Zealand Airforce and the Gisborne Coastguard found him in the water and used a rescue swimmer to get him on board the helicopter. Adrian Brown is the Gisborne Coastguard skipper, and speaks to Gyles Beckford.
