It isn’t proper to laugh at other people’s misfortune and obviously you might not feel too easy if you were standing on the shore watching as a guy flailing in the sea, a few hundred metres off White Sand beach, refuses all offers of help. Watching the events live you would be sure to be praying for his rescue and, as the video shows, eventually, he is forcibly dragged out of the water and into a rescue boat, naked, in order to save himself from himself.
Fortunately, he survived and knowing this and with the benefit of hindsight, feel free to watch the video, shake your head in disbelief as you wonder just what a total knob he must be. To be honest I wouldn’t have blamed the rescuers if they had just left him alone and then buggered off to have a beer and watch the sunset whilst he happily drowned, returning an hour late to pick the body up off the beach.
There must be less embarrassing ways to get your 15 minutes of fame on Koh Chang’s seminal ‘B News Channel’.
