Thinking of going in the water this weekend? Think again.
Police have issued a warning to anyone planning ocean related activities such as boating, surfing, kite-surfing, snorkeling, diving or swimming. Rough seas and strong currents are expected, and any activity on the water carries great risk.
They are particularly concerned about ‘thrill-seekers’ who would use the bad weather as an opportunity to get their kicks.
“Rough weather and high waves have attracted people to the shoreline in the past, especially thrill seekers” said Brad Ebanks, Acting Superintendent of Specialist Operations, “and sadly we have had incidents where people’s lives were put in danger. We ask you do not risk your life and the lives of those who may try to save you.”
