    Love this quote:

    “After what we went through, I don’t think I’ll ever get on a Jet Ski again. It was horrifying,” he said.

    I think it is good for all of us he never skis again, but really? You think the problem is jet skiing? Not going out after dark on an unlit watercraft in unsafe conditions? Wow.

    The two 26-year-olds launched their Jet Ski into Jamaica Bay in the Rockaways at around 9:30 Monday night, CBS 2′s Elise Finch reported.
    Shortly after setting out into the open water, their Jet Ski died and drifted near Big Egg Marsh where the couple spent the entire night waiting to be rescued.
    “Their friend reported them missing at around 12:30 at night and that’s what started all the searching,” said David Console, with the NYPD Harbor Unit.

    The couple was reported missing three hours into their nighttime joy ride, but it took emergency crews another six hours to find them because their watercraft had no running lights, Finch reported.
    The couple had no cell phone, flares, or other signally devices. All they could do was sit on the sinking Jet Ski and wait to be rescued from the marsh...

    "The couple had no cell phone, flares, or other signal devices."

    That was their first mistake.


    "All they could do was sit on the sinking Jet Ski and wait to be rescued from the marsh."

    Sinking?

    “After what we went through, I don’t think I’ll ever get on a Jet Ski again. It was horrifying,” he said.

    Not sure you can blame all of this on the machine, try thinking ahead next time.

    Moral of the story...if you're gonna do something dumb on a PWC, make sure it's one that will at least float...hint - NOT a Sea Doo.
