JET-SKI THREE RESCUED.
Lifeboats, a coastguard rescue team and a police helicopter were called out after the three on two jet skis had failed to return to Poole Harbour, Dorset, on time.
The 17-year-old, who had suffered an asthma attack, was found by the police helicopter after a 90-minute search.
He was transferred to a lifeboat and taken to the shore.
The woman and 14-year-old were located moments later on the second jet-ski by a second lifeboat crew. A coastguard spokesman said they had all become trapped in the mud after attempting to go for help.
A coastguard rescue helicopter then airlifted all three to a waiting ambulance and taken to hospital.
Derek Bacon, from the Portland Coastguard , said the incident showed how important it was to leave details ashore before going on a journey.
"These people did, so we located them before anything serious occurred."
