Man stable after being rescued from River Thames near Battersea

Wandsworth Guardian: The RNLI boats were scrambled to the scene The RNLI boats were scrambled to the scene

A stranded man was dramatically pulled from the River Thames last week after he was spotted bobbing along near Battersea.

An eagle-eyed passer-by saw the marooned man floating along the freezing cold river near the heliport by Wandsworth Bridge.

The RNLI rescue boats were scrambled to the scene from Chiswick Pier and arrived within three minutes.

Rescuers found the man, now struggling to stay afloat, and hauled him aboard before administering CPR.

He was taken to hospital by ambulance and his condition is thought to be improving.
