Irresponsible Sport

Oregroanian March 29, 2007 page B1: Yesterday I commented on an article about a mountain rescue operation, “Good Dog – Dumb People.” Today another article, “Fatal current foreseeable, surfers say.” This story reports the death of one of three surfers who did not understand their sport well enough to participate. The winds and current were far to sever for them to venture into the water. The three were swept away from shore by the strong current. Only one manage to regain the shore on his own, and called 911. Once again, rescuers were called to the scene. They managed to save one of the two remaining surfers in the water.

The trouble is that Mother Nature can be beautiful and serene, but she can turn ugly quickly. There is tremendous power in nature, those that don’t understand that, are the ones that get into trouble and call others to put themselves into peril to save these people from their stupidity. Something must be done about irresponsible sport. For example if these people were made financially responsible for their rescue, or were fined, would that cause more people to seek training and reduce the number of these emergencies? Boat safety courses have reduced fatalities, in boating. Should safety courses be required for all dangerous sports?
