FORGET TOBACCO AND SUGAR, JUST BAN STUPID.


Stuff reports a skipper falls of his boat and drowns in Marlborough Sounds.

Charles Gerrard Gallagher fell off his racing yacht in full wet weather gear but apparently no life jacket.

His companion raised the alarm but was unable to retrieve Gallagher.

Rescue chopper winched him from the sea but CPR was unsuccessful.

"wont happen to me?" , sorry pal it just did and if you were accurately reported to  not have had a safety line and or a life jacket you were indeed terminally stupid.

Even more worrying, I hope no-one who really had need of coast guard, rescue Helicopter and other resources did not suffer while you were indulging yourself to death.

11 meter racing yacht and too bloody stupid to wear a floatation device!!!
