Respect the sea - These muppets didn't

In the last few weeks local news has been full of stories about people in trouble because they ignored warning notices and red flags on the beaches.  Again this weekend another incident, this time in Los Gigantes marina when these two muppets decided to ignore the huge waves coming over the marina wall and attempted to exit the marina in their small boat

Click on the video link below.  One of the men was flipped out of the boat but did manage to swim to the beach.  They are both very lucky it didn't end in disaster.

We were in LG in January as the lifeboat brought in the swimmer who had got into difficulties in the natural pool, he was saved by a very brave policeman who jumped in to help.
It never ceases to amaze us how many people leave their brains behind when they go on holiday, endangering not only themselves but the rescue services.
It is high time they were charged the full cost of these rescue missions, if its helicopter, lifeboat or ambulance, it would at least send out a message and may make them think twice, although some of the numpties appear to share just the one brain between them all.
