    As a man's body floats in three feet of water, 25 emergency workers stand and watch

    The picture that shames Britain: As a man's body floats in three feet of water, 25 emergency workers stand and watch because they aren't 'trained' to go in water

    MoS investigation into park pond tragedy and emergency services’ response reveals:

    Rules that stopped firemen entering water were meant for fast-flowing rivers
    Coalition ‘common sense’ report gives green light for heroes – but was ignored
    Our reporter, in pair of waders, took two minutes to reach spot where body floated
    Look, up in the sky!! Is it a bird, is it a plane????

    NO!!! It's SUPER NADIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10. You go ahead and go into water in the 50s


    and with swift currents.

    Yes, they could have done it, IF they had BOATS... and COLD WATER gear...

    By the way BECAUSE of that they NOW have the required GEAR and the TRAINING TO USE IT.

    Compare to the British situation.

    1.- Fairly shallow water, you still could drown though.

    2.- Water was not in the fifties nor did it go all the way to chest, person in waders shows that... yes it matters for core body temperature.

    3.- Pay attention this matters, NO CURRENTS.

    You see the policy in Alameda County applied to CURRENTS... which those waters are FAMOUS for... TIDE currents... the policy in the UK was written for SWIFT WATER rescue, such as what you find yourself doing at rivers, which this shallow body did NOT have.

    See the difference?

    By the way I used to do this shit for real, the EMS shit that is.

    Just Damn!!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    What's next for Nadin?

    Her claim that she was first one to step foot on the Moon?

    That she invented oxygen?

    Maybe she'll tell us that she can prove New York is the only real place in America and the rest of the country is just made up, or how she won WWII with a book of matches and seven plastic forks.

    Judging from the pictures of Nads, if she gets her hands on a fork, she's not going to use it for fighting.
    I'd rather have a daughter in a whorehouse than a son in the University of Texas.

    Arroyo, most folks have aversion about touching a dead body; even the pros wear rubber gloves.

    A paramedic was also told not to enter the water because he didn’t have the right ‘protective’ clothing and might be in breach of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
    Now I get it. Union regs permitted anyone from going in.
    Be Not Afraid.

    It sounds like this is a situation in which it was obviously a dead body, and not a living person struggling for survival. They would have rescued a living person.
