Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
Again, I would ask why the person refused medical treatment once ashore. That is what piqued my curiosity along with saying they were taking on water rather then sinking. Could be bad reporting I don't know but it does makes me wonder.
I would take anything reported by the media with a grain of salt.
Maybe they refused going to the emergency room as they found a doctor to treat them.
Not exactly the same as refused medical treatment but could be reported as such.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
