  Spanish police saved from sea by smugglers they were chasing Three Spanish police officers who were thrown into the sea when their boat crashed early Friday during a high-speed chase were pulled to safety by the drug-smugglers they were chasing. The unexpected rescue happened after a police vessel began pursuing a speedboat "with four people on board that was suspected of transporting drugs" in waters off the southern coast of Spain, a police statement said.

Cato said several people were in the vehicle and fled. One officer chased them on foot and that’s when he was struck by a CPD vehicle.

“What I know at this point is that they attempted to stop the vehicle, someone threw a handgun out of the vehicle. When the officers put their equipment on, the vehicle took off,” Cato said.
