about 2 weeks ago i posted about a really bad experience that i had with some ski'ers and a huge boat, and today i was involved with a bad situation at the exact same location. a freind and i took my boat to a bankspot we have on a local river today to do some flathead fishing. about 6pm we noticed some jet-skiers launch at the ramp downstream, and about a half hour later a ski boat launched as well. they were staying away from us so i lost intirest in them, but a little while later my freind noticed smoke coming from the ski boat in the middle of the river. at first i thought they just had a bad fuel mixture, but after a couple minutes the smoke turned black and then we seen flames! at that point i seen 2 folks jump overboard so i jumped in my boat and took off to see if i could help. and what were the jet ski'ers doing? absolutely nothing! they were right near this boat doing all their crazy little stunts and had no concern for the folks who just jumped overboard! by the time i reached the boat the only person in the boat had managed to put out the fire by soaking a sweater and throwing it on the flames. but what really upset me was there was a woman hanging on to the edge of this boat screaming for help with no life jacket and the jet-skiers just sat and watched or were dancing all around the boat!!!!! i pulled her out, and the other person who jumped over who was struggling to stay afloat (no life jackets). the woman was very upset and crying but was ok. after i managed to get them on board i went to see if the other guy still in the boat needed any help. a jet skier who wasnt part of the group managed to pull the boat back to the dock while i took the 2 passengers ashore. and what are these jerks doing now you may ask? they were all around us doing their antics totaly oblivious to the fact that 2 people almost drowned. it wasnt till after i got back to my fishing spot and retold my experience that i got really upset about those jet-skiers! i guess at the time i was more concerned about the people i pulled out. i got a good look at the jet ski's, they were brand new, and were pulled by some really high dollar SUV's. what is it about people with lots of wealth? they seem to care nothing about anyone but themselves!!!!
