We breed ’em smart in Melbourne!
… state emergency services workers had to take time out to rescue a dim-witted duo riding an inflatable doll down the Yarra River.
The man and woman, both 19, were left clinging to a fallen gum tree in the middle of the river in North Warrandyte when one of the doll’s snagged on the tree and their caper went horribly wrong about 4.30pm.
An SES watercraft came to their rescue not far from Bradleys Lane about an hour later.
While it is understood the blow up doll and several other inflatable items were salvaged from the scene, the bottoms of the rescued woman’s bathers were long gone down the river.
A blanket was required to protect her modesty as she exited the water.
No comment required. Well except to say I think they should have made her (and him) exit the water without the modesty blanket.
