Jet Ski operators on the paradise island of Koh Samui are fed up as being seen a villains by many and have decided to speak up for themselves.
The team have rescued many people from the beaches around the island, some who could have drowned had they not intervened. A video posted on Facebook recently shows such a rescue as several swimmers are washed out to sea by the strong currents and waves. Another act, saved a young Russian woman, who was extremely grateful for their presence.
The Jet Ski guys are proud of their achievements but they often are seen as the bad guys, according one poster. This is despite their heroic life saving adventures in the seas, which results in many lives being saved throughout the year.
The Jet Skiers asked that people share their story, so it may reach the people who are always knocking them.
One person said “we get nothing for doing this – it is an act of kindness, which saves lives.”
Russian lady Alla Khanee, knows only too well the importance of these guys. She was one person they saved, taking her from the peril of the waves to the safety of the beach, where she was treated following her ordeal.
In fact the Jet Skiers assisted in saving half a dozen people over a two day period but yet still get bad press from many.
There are warnings informing people of the dangers but often people think the know better and head into the waters. If it were not for the Jet Ski operators, many would perish.
So let’s give these guys some credit and praise them for their sterling work, provided to the people of Koh Samui, free of charge.
