sorry, that was awful...
Hmmm...Usually people who do these sorts of stunts bring boats around them to make sure this kind of thing doesn`t happen don`t they?...Just like that one guy that swam some gulf.-----------------------------
The smart ones do... you don`t attempt to break a world record as dangerous as crossing the ocean alone, you bring some one along with instructions not to help you unless its really critical, like your boat capsizing while your sleeping.
Freddyferret. This guy wanted to set a record. Wanted to prove that something could be done. now look at a fireman. He puts his life on the line everyday. Would you want him to stop because he has kids? What about a truck driver? he could crash and leave his kids behind?It can be applied to ANY senario. He took a calculated risked. He planned this for 10 years!
He was NOT selfish. It`s very sad but stop using the argument that because your a parent you shouldnt do things. Everything has a risk.
Wow..just wow! You obviously dont have children or..if you do your obviously one of those psycho parents who live through their children! You dont stop being a parent EVER. You put in everything thats needed..but your still a person who has to have a life!
wer did he get his food/water from?
There are many comments already about how selfish he was to do this to his son. I don`t think it`s selfish. I think it`s TRAGIC.
Selfishness lies in parents who are abusive to their children. The children you hear about on the news that have been starved, burned, molested, raped, beaten, murdered, etc. It lies in parents who choose drugs and drinking over taking care of their children. THAT is the problem with the world today, Devi. And if you`ve ever met any of those kids first hand like I have, you`d agree.
This tragedy was pointless, senseless, selfish, and most of all: avoidable...now his children will grow up not knowing their father.
There are real good reasons why you don`t go diving or rock climbing or hiking alone -- especially when other living beings now directly depend on you for their well being and safety.
Sad. All the way around.
At least he went out doing what he loved doing.
