Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23rd 2009
20 INNER WEST COURIER, Thursday, July 23, 2009 MB OPINION Adrienne Bayly Jennifer Kennedy Victoria Morrison Wayne Selway Jessie Baxter The recent rescue of a British man lost in the Blue Mountains has cost several million dollars. We asked Five Dock shoppers whether they think he should foot the bill? A financial rescue mission? Adrienne Bayly, Port Stephens: I think if they go out there they should be better prepared. His father said he was capable of looking after himself out there so he should have taken the proper precautions. It has cost us a lot of money to find him so I think he should have to pay for that, especially because he was so careless. Jennifer Kennedy, Five Dock: They should be liable for their own costs. It sounds harsh, but everyone has to get health insurance, so they should get travel insurance as well, and prepare better. It breaks my heart a little bit that my taxes go to his rescue instead of more worthwhile things like hospitals. Victoria Morrison, Five Dock: I think you can't predict what's going to happen to you. Hopefully people are sensible when they go out there, but if someone's in genuine trouble then I think the community should pay, and hopefully they learn from the experience. I think there's a lot of other things that are costing the community like ... obesity, so I think the odd rescue should be paid for by the community as well. Wayne Selway, Lilyfield:I think the cost of rescue should be his. There are things that track people in the bush, like a mobile phone beeper thing, which would help them be rescued quicker. If someone gets lost, they have to send helicopters and everything, and I think the person being rescued should have to pay. Jessie Baxter, Abbotsford:I think generosity should be shown in those situations. If I got lost in the bush, I would hope that someone would pay for my rescue. People who aren't from this country dont really know much about Australia and how it works, so I think we should be looking out for them a little bit. MORE GREAT SPECIALS IN STORE!
