Some unlucky boater just got engine trouble in the worst place possible. Stick around and see if he makes it out.
Getting stuck in the surf is one thing; getting flipped in the surf is life-threatening.
There are bad places to get stuck with a motor that won’t work, and then there are the worst possible places it could happen.
Here’s one of the worst:
Warning: Strong language used in the video
“There’s a complete yard sale over here.” Truer words were never spoken by the bystander taking the video. It’s a little hard to tell if the men trying to save the boat were wearing wetsuits. It made it look like they were simply trying to save a rogue boat, but it might have belonged to the man trying to get in it.
Whatever the case, the surf was rolling and those rocks were getting closer and closer. In the event of such a calamity, call the police and the Coast Guard and let the pros do the job!
Here’s hoping that everything ended well for all involved.
