Video: Australian police search boat capsizes

A police boat assisting in a search for a missing Congolese boy in Australia overturned off a New South Wales beach


SOUTH WALES, Australia — Six police divers and their equipment were thrown into the water after the motor on their boat cut out and it was hit by a wave off Corrimal Beach, in Wollongong.

None of the police officers were injured in the incident but the rough sea conditions impeded the search for eight-year-old Elakimu Muteba who went swimming on Monday evening and has not been seen since.
