Hudson River rescue operation!

7/13/2009:

Where’s Pamela Anderson when you need her?

Reports of a “man in distress” in the Hudson River…

You can listen in on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel – apparently, the man decided to go tubing in the river, and all of a sudden became “distressed” – and now is floating south towards Jersey City. Both Hoboken’s and Jersey City’s Harbor Patrols have been dispatched to rescue the man.

Maybe he thought this was the “Jersey Shore?”

A shark washed ashore on Long Island, today, to die. So sad :(.

Nah, sand sharks aren’t a problem, won’t try to bite you unless you do something like… Step on their head.

Bull sharks on the other hand will swim miles inland up fresh water rivers and streams. They are also responsible for more attacks on humans than any other species.

Jaws was based on a series of attacks in the early part of this century in NJ – some of which happened in fresh water.

Now get on out there and enjoy your summer.. Splish splash.

The man who was “rescued” by the Coast Guard is a professional “river jumper”. He has fallen off several piers
and is making a lifetime occupation out of collecting them!
Is that being a public nuisance or should we all just give him credit for keeping the Coast Guard on their toes…?

I do not think the U.S. Coast Guard needs a deadbeat like this guy to “keep on their toes”.

I have for years watched our local fishermen and crabbing
people catch sand sharks. One man stepped on the head of the 14 inch shark and it continuosly tried to snap his foot off.
It’s teeth came out several inches from it’s jawbone, just like a pit bull.

Tubing might result in some chunks taken out of butts or some missing digits. Look up Sand Sharks on line and take a look. Tubing is a dumb idea…
