Big waves and yet adults let their kids get within their reach….

Yet clueless adults allow their young children to play in the strong tidal surge that could carry them back out into the waves in 15 seconds.

When waves get this big up against the shore, the second picture is the last thing you want to allow your kids to do. Visitors to the coast who obviously have no appreciation of the power of the sea run a very high risk of losing their children. Messages of warning during periods of great danger at the beach like this are broadcast on radio and television and on internet websites all the time. Yet time and time again we see what really amounts to child abuse or even reckless child endangerment when adults stand or sit by and react with amusement when tons of water swirl around their children.

A year or so ago some little kids from Portland were down visiting Lincoln City and decided to dig a deep hole in the sand. They dug it as the tide was coming in. By the time they were done, the tide had come in so rapidly that a little girl at the bottom of the hole was run over by a big wave rushing up the beach. The walls of the hole collapsed around her. She was literally entombed in an instant. Despite frantic efforts by several adults to dig her out, she died right where she was playing.

The beach is Mother Nature’s playground. But children should never play without the watchful guidance of adults who know how to safely play at the beach. And those adults like the above need stern counseling from law enforcement on the danger they inflict on their children by letting them play so, so dangerously.
