(September 2010, Wales, UK) A dear old fellow, 81 and counting, almost shuffled off this mortal coil by rescuing a floating rubbish bin as large as his little dinghy! He succeeded at the first phase of the mission, only to find himself tethered to an enormous rubbish bin, adrift and wallowing in the ocean without a lifejacket. The man was headed for nowhere. Fortunately, his dire situation was noted by the Coast Guard, who rescued him -- and made a second trip out to tow the dinghy and rubbish to shore.
Look at the picture! How funny is that?
This aged angel is not a winner, only a near miss. And
he is an environmental hero! After all, protecting the planet
*is* worth the risk.
