Boat with four young women almost goes over dam in Texas becuz they were too busy yakking to notice

11 Jun

Hair-raising photos show a boat perilously close to plunging over the edge of a Texas dam — because the passengers were too busy gossiping, police and rescue officials said.

The electric boat, which was carrying four women, was saved from the edge of Longhorn Dam in east Austin on Thursday after it got swept up in a strong current at Lady Bird Lake, a reservoir along the Colorado River, KTBC reported.

“They approached the dam, weren’t paying attention, they were talking to each other,” Austin Police Officer Brad Smith told the station.

Defund the police! 😉

No Darwin Awards; alas, they get the chance to (and probably will, thanks to thirsty men) reproduce.

    So sad that some white knight had to rescue them. I can’t think of a better example to have added to the collection of “things one DOES NOT let women do.”

    Meanwhile in Arkansas, lunatic state troopers are flipping pregnant women in SUVs:

    Thankfully the young woman and her child are unharmed. I hope she takes them for everything.

    Also a great ad for the Ford Explorer. And why the F are there TV news reporters in Arkansas with the last name, “El Khoury?”

    Bonus: Lots of great, hilarious takes from the ZH comment critters.

      This cop needs to be executed on TV live by the state to send a message to cops not to flip people’s cars when they’re trying ot pull over. But that won’t happen because all modern governments are of Satan and evil, because democrasy is rule by demons that possess the lowest common denominator, demon-ocrasy.

        I can’t remember. I do remember writing an email to the governor suggesting the cop be tried for two counts of attempted murder.

      I saw that. The Arkansas state policeman did it on his volition. She was going fourteen mph over the limit.

        That cop is insane.

    As for the dumb women in the boat, what is that old saying? “God looks after fools and Englishmen who go out in the noonday sun.”

      I think you are mixing up two sayings, “Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out under the noonday sun”, and “God has a special providence for fools, drunkards, and the United States of America.” 🙂
