stop banging on about the sodding children!
why should it be more traumatic that a child gets hurt than anyone else, are they more valuable is their safety more highly prized than anyone elses.
if YOU were being half drowned in a shore break and the option was to drown but not release incase timmy got hurt or release to leash or completely and be alive enough to deal with timmys upset parents who were letting him play on a windy beach near large breaking waves unsupervised what would YOU do.
for me Timmy is going to have to take the chance…
we are all insured right?
