South Africa-Lifeguard's

Boat in South Africa was stuck in full throttle almost decapitating one of the lifeguards swimming towards it. Lifeguards were shouting and whistling to the ones that got thrown out the boat to swim away from shore because they were still trying to get onto the boat.

That's a good case for a throttle return spring...

And a killcord.
