Louisiana Brothers Extinguish Fire With Their PWC


When brothers Nick and Jason Bordelon were enjoying themselves at The Barley Oak pub on Lake Pontchartrain in Mandeville, Louisiana on August 1st, they’d never have expected to take on duties as firefighters. As the brothers sat at the pub enjoying the sunshine, they noticed smoke in the distance out on the lake according to a report by Fox8Live. Figuring they should investigate in case somebody was in the danger, the brothers put down their drinks and hopped on their jet skis that were moored across the street.

As they approached the smoke, they saw a jet ski fully engulfed in flames and floating by itself on the lake. According to Jason, the jet ski rider had been picked up by a passing boat and was not injured however the ski was left to burn. Using a procedure they learned while watching a YouTube video recently, the brothers jumped into action and used their jet skis to try and extinguish the fire. After a few passes at the fire, they were successful in dousing the flames.

This incident is proof that while YouTube is full of millions of pretty useless videos, you can learn some very cool tricks that could just very well come in handy one day! Way to go guys!
