Just been told by a work mate that its on the news that 100 kids have been swept out to sea near Ireland.... Some thing about a freak wave and capsizing 91 boats they were on?

I hope he has got it wrong, but he doesnt normaly lie about such things..

Just read this. Irish coastguard say all have been rescued. What an afternoon it must have been for all concerned.

Imagine being the person who receives the call for the coastguard. "Hello, Hi yeah. We've got about 110 kids in the Irish sea, can you help?" :eek:

** About 20 people were reported missing shortly afterwards, though the Irish coastguard later said everyone had been rescued safely. **

How Weird.

That happened down here last week when a class from a school was kayaking off shore in bad weather.

I think they have made the school pay for all the trouble of rescuing the kids due to them doing it when bad weather was predicted

One got swept 4 kms out to sea :eek:
