Videos: Pair of Jet Skiers Rescued Off of Sebastian Inlet


There’s no quicker way to be humbled than to venture deep into the open ocean woefully unprepared for what what Mother Nature can throw at you. It’s happened to many (if not most of us in one way or another), and for two friends riding aboard a yellow Sea-Doo Spark, today was that day.

According to a report televised on WPTV, West Palm Beach syndicate of ABC news, “The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office said two people were rescued on a jet ski this weekend near the Sebastian Inlet. Deputies received a report of a jet ski that was carrying two people was adrift and headed out to sea in the Sebastian Inlet. The sheriff’s office said a nearby boater responded and assisted the jet skier back to shore.”

Thankfully, the two skiers who were adrift for some time, were rescued by a nearby boater, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Prior to their rescue, the two were slowly headed out to sea in the Sebastian Inlet. While no report as to the cause of the two’s precarious situation was given, it is known that the two did not suffer any injuries. The lesson that should be learned is, 1) respect the ocean; and 2) always go prepared for the worst scenario.
