Wladimir Klitschko and his family were SAVED by emergency responders in Spain on Monday — after the luxury yacht they were traveling on, caught fire at sea!!
The rescue was all captured on video … as firefighters and other emergency workers rushed to the boat off the coast of Mallorca around 2 AM and sprayed fire-suppressing foam on the boat.
“The boat was on fire, we’re hanging out outside,” the former boxing champ says on the dramatic video … “We’re in the sea getting rescued from the Mallorcan/Spanish fire department.”
The yacht crew had already controlled the fire by the time rescuers showed up — so responders mostly did some thorough inspection, made sure the fire was out … and then towed the ship to port.
But, during the tow, smoke began to billow out of the engine room — so the rest of the crew was evacuated to a rescue ship.
After the incident, 43-year-old Klitschko tweeted about the rescue … saying, “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!”
