Fishermen jump ship moments before boat smash!

This is the moment US fishermen jumped ship and narrowly missed being mowed down by another boat. 

The footage shows the trio frantically trying to catch the attention of the vessel’s skipper, before diving into the water at the last second.  It happened near Portland, Oregon, on August 12, 2017, but the video was only this week published by Salmon Trout Steelheader Magazine.  Local media report a $372,500 lawsuit has been filed against the driver of the oncoming boat.  The trio involved used the incident to raise awareness about the importance of wearing a lifejacket.
