Karma in Corolla
Published on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 by

Earlier today I spent an hour typing up a story about Corolla red flags, vacationers who leave their brains at home and about Karma and her friendship with the beautiful ocean. But instead of posting it, I chose to simply blurt my story out.

Keep it simple stupid, am I right?

obx red flags

Last weekend a father took his two kids in to an amazingly dangerous ocean despite the red flags. I believe the children were about ten and eight. One of Corolla Rescue’s finest told the father and kids to get out of the water. She spent time explaining rip currents and the rules attached to red flags.

When she drove away, he motioned for his kids to come back in the water with him.

The lifeguard returned, saw he completely ignored her warnings and proceeded to call the sheriff.

The sheriff wrote up some tickets. To the tune of $500 per person.

Putting your own life at stake? Whatever. But risking the lives of two small children and a lifeguard who in her own right is someone’s daughter?

That would be $1,500 please.

BAM!

    BAM is right, Katherine! And I’m glad to hear the sheriff ticketed him. I cannot believe he went back into the water (with his children) after the rescuer took the time to explain how dangerous the water was?!?!

    • You would not believe what we see Ron. I saved a child two summers ago… must have been three… left completely alone.. oh wait, except for the seven year old who was “in charge.” A rough ocean. He went under and I grabbed him. Took him to the sand. Then it happened again but he was almost GONE… I carried him out and a parent finally appeared. The parent didn’t say thank you, took the child out of my arms and fussed at the OTHER child!

  • What a horrible excuse for a father. Pay the tickets buster. Some people just know everything, about everything.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂
