Twenty-one dragon boat paddlers were rescued by marine police and firefighters yesterday after their boat sank near Sai Kung. The paddlers were practising for a coming dragon boat competition at Trio Beach at about 1pm when their boat was swamped by the wakes from two passing speed boats. All 21 paddlers fell into the sea and a 26-year-old woman was treated at Tseung Kwan O Hospital for a leg injury and discharged.
