Boxer Wladimir Klitschko rescued from yacht inferno

Retired boxing great Wladimir Klitschko and his family are recovering after an emergency at sea.
A yacht on which the fighter was a passenger caught fire off the coast of Mallorca, Spain on Monday morning (24Jun19), and emergency responders had to race out to save the heavyweight.
The rescue was all captured on video, in which Klitschko can be heard stating, “The boat was on fire, we’re hanging out outside… We’re in the sea getting rescued from the Mallorcan/Spanish fire department.”
The yacht crew had already controlled the fire by the time the rescue team arrived and towed the ship to port, but when smoke began to billow out of the engine room, the crew was evacuated to another ship, according to TMZ.
One back on dry land, Klitschko took to Twitter and wrote: “Be careful what you wish for: fate took my wish for ‘some #adrenalin’ a bit too literally and our boat-trip Sunday night ended up in our boat #igniting and family & friends being evacuated by coast guard and fire rescue-team. No worries: we are all fine!”
