A GROUP of drug traffickers have rescued the Guardia Civil agents chasing them after their boats collided. 

The bizarre scenes occurred off the Costa del Sol when a Guardia Civil patrol boat gave chase to a semi-rigid vessel occupied by four suspected narco-traffickers.

Their boat was ‘out of control’ and circling them, very nearly hitting them.

Following the unwritten laws of the seas, the drug traffickers came to the agents’ rescue.

No one was harmed but the four traffickers were arrested after authorities recovered more than 80 bundles of hashish, weighing more than three tonnes.
