So let me make sure I've got this clear... these folks swam to the island in the cold water, without lifejackets. (Presumably indicating that they are (a) tolerant to cold (b) skilled swimmers and (c) sharp as corks). Then this lifeboat thing picks them up and quickly pops them back from where they came.
Worse case is what? They fall out of the boat and have to swim to shore... like they just did?
Geez guys, lighten up.
