I think his management and awareness of the suitation was very Good. He saved the girl from Drowning. He very quickly figured out who was most in need of his help. I would say a job very well done given he had four people to save on his own.

Another couple of minutes and the outcome could've been so very different, those kids were almost gone.


The problem with Jetskis is you can't steer unless you are on the gas.

I don't take it away from him that he did a good job, but I guess that girl was worrying, then even more so when she was hit.

All ended well in the end!

Earned his money that day, always go for the ones that are the quietest or are not moving, usually the same one, the ones that are shouting and waving about have plenty left inside them

Was thinking exactly the same, if he wouldn't have done that the guy would have lost his pants by the time he got to the beach

Unlike the Bavaria thread, can we not assume this guy was a lifeguard, based on the fact he has a camera and stretcher on the back of the boat. Therefore can we not be a bit more critical if his over enthusiastic verging on chaotic rescue?

The "non-professional" in the Bavaria thread could teach him a thing or two about composure.

There seemed to be little in terms of applied process/practice of getting someone on a jet ski that rolls over.

As for driving on to her! Wtf was he doing? Completely panicked in my eyes.

But yes, he did save them, just.
