Doofus Of The Day #738

Today's award goes to two photographers for the British Sky News network. During the recent St. Jude storm in that country, they were taking pictures at Brighton of swimmers skylarking in the waves.  Unfortunately, they forgot that heavy surf is, well . . . heavy surf.

I wonder what was the value of the flooded photographic equipment?  One hopes Sky News insures their cameras and lenses against doofus photographers . . .

ROTF... Got what they deserved there!!! And probably $135,000 camera! Hope it came out of their pay! :-)

Actually, the pro gear is quite well sealed against moisture, so chances are that there will be more damage from the scratching of the pebbles on their "beach". Not that the salt water spray is going to help.
