The amount of replies that ...

A) Didn't read all the thread replies is astonishing .

B) Didn't get the full gist of the story .

C) Still didn't realise this is actually from the eighties 😅😅😅


Great internet discussion makes Chinese whispers seem an everyday occurance.😅.

Surely a joke, but maybe the parents should be fined for illegal dumping of plastic in the sea!

The world has gone mad!

Let’s hope the RNLI bill them in return for their time and expenses, perhaps minus the £7 demanded by them.

I despair at what is happening with people. This story we are discussing is absolutely shocking and they should receive the bill for the rescue,  The 999 calls people make are beyond belief.  Can you believe someone dialled 999 to come and remove a rotting chicken carcass from their bin because it was smelling badly , or asking for a lift home as they’ve missed the last bus 😩😩😩😩.  There is no hope for the human race the way things are going. 

people like that potty or drunk?  lonely maybe but why not ring samaritans... though they short of staff I think.. mate was going to volunteer but they needed her to do overnite once a month I think at that time.


Interesting voluntary work though and get training so good learning process.  My ears not great and I'm not a good listener probably partly because of that so not for me.  I think people do a day a week?


those shots of kids throwing bricks thru ambulance windscreen hacked me off, maybe the parents should be prosecuted for neglect if they've allowed their kids to become such animals.  I think it was eastleigh, hants?
