"We saw the lights of the lifeboat as she approached and watched them as she cruised off-shore, then the lights disappeared. We heard shouts and realised something must have happened to her. It was pitch black and we could see nothing. I got my car and manouevred it so that the headlights shone out to the sea while the searchlight of a fire-tender which was also rushed to the scene was also utilised, but still we saw nothing and by this time in our hearts we feared it was all over."
