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.
