Five people, including three tourists from Tamil Nadu, had a miraculous escape after the houseboat they were cruising sank in Vembanad Lake in Alappuzha on Monday. The Pulinkunnu police said the passengers and two crew were rescued by a speed boat. “The vessel set sail from the Kannitta boat jetty in the morning. It capsized around noon in Chithira Kayal. It is likely the vessel sank after hitting a pole or sandbar,” said an official adding the water level in the area was low.
