The RIB’s helmsman called for help at 12:12 after the vessel became stranded and Humber Coastguard requested the launch of the inshore lifeboat to go to their assistance.
The casualty was quickly located near Trow Point and a tow attached by the volunteer lifeboat crew before being towed to safety at South Shields slipway.
After ensuring the four people were safe the lifeboat returned to station.
