A houseboat that began to sink in the English Channel left a hot tub adrift in the water, Thursday, according to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Lifeboats rescue teams were contacted once the houseboat started taking on water as it was being towed by a tug boat near the coast of Newhaven. Footage released by the RNLI shows the lifeboat arriving at the scene, with debris emanating from the sinking vessel.

Due to the size of the hot tub, the response team were forced to leave the object to sink.
