Sad that is little girl didn’t make it.
Hmmm. Wonder how many other countries would do this for one little “insignificant” person?
Impressive work! Look at those waves.
I read that the little girl died and the woman who was rescued was badly injured, but the man (the person who is being rescued here?) seems to have been lucky and come out ok. These sneaker waves just seem to come up out of nowhere. It’s hard to imagine.
Been there many times and common sense tells you stay away when the waters rough.
It’s sad a little girl had to die because of here stupid parents.
Amen. I do hope that they don't alter the viewing stand after this. People should have known better and they should have had the lower observation area closed.
