Police chasing a drug gang off the Costa Del Sol suddenly crashed their boat and suddenly found the people they’d been chasing become their rescuers.

The bizarre turn of events took place off the coast of the Costa del Sol on Friday, as the Spanish maritime patrol agents were trying to intercept a boat suspected to be carrying narcotics.

A group of suspected drug traffickers ended up coming to the rescue of three police officers chasing them after their boats collided at sea.

The bizarre turn of events took place off the coast of the Costa del Sol on Friday, as the Spanish maritime patrol agents were trying to intercept a boat suspected to be carrying narcotics.

“The crew of the helicopter of the Malaga Air Unit, upon realising the imminent danger to the civil guards, required the occupants of the other vessel to support them by public address, being rescued by them and being all unharmed,” the police statement read.

The suspected drug traffickers were not spared following the gesture – and the four people on board were arrested after officers recovered more than 80 bundles of hashish, weighing more than three tonnes.
