Fun & duty in Medicane: Surfers, swimmer, delivery boy risk their lives (videos)

While Medicane IANOS started testing the Ionian islands and the West coast of Peloponnese, some water sports fans could not resist the challenge and jump in the water. For a delivery boy in Central Greece, it was a matter of duty to deliver the ordered meal.

A 35-year-old man almost drowned off the beach of Spiantza in Pyrgos, southern Peloponnese, after he went for a swim despite the bad weather and the rough sea.

Strong sea currents carried him away and he started calling for help. His brother rushed for help after he called for an ambulance.

The young man was struggling to keep afloat, drank lots of salty water but ultimately managed to reach the shore by himself. He was transferred to the hospital, and his life was not in danger, local media reported.

Next to the ambulance, police and local authorities rushed to the beach and the rough sea landscape your see at the video below.

The swimmer was transferred to the hospital, his life was not in danger, local media reported.

In Lefkada, four surfers ignored the warnings and jumped into the water for their favorite sports taking advantage of the wind.

In Lamia, Central Greece, it was more the duty and less the fun that pushed a delivery guy want to cross with his motorcycle a flooded road on Friday. He was stopped by police and informed that he cannot go further due to the flood.

His epic response was: “How will I deliver then?”

The flooded street

According to local media, he made an U-turn seeking an alternative in order to delivery the meal.

PS it is a big question why customers set the lives of delivery staff at risk when they order amid harsh weather conditions. Eggs or sandwiches could do too, no?
