SMS Text message can save your life (or boat)

It seems a Polish national who didn't speak English found himself in distress when the engine in his boat had seized and he was taking on water. What did he do? Send a text message to a friend who could alert the British Coast Guard who then found someone who could speak Polish and assist the lone troubled yachtsman.
