SUPer To The Rescue In Bali Plane Crash
It turns out that stand up paddleboards (SUP) have another use—rescue boards. Ben Panangian, who is dating the infamous alleged Australian weed smuggler Schapelle Corby, was Johnny-on-the-spot when a Lion Air plane overshot the runway in Bali and ended up broken in half in the ocean. Panangian used his SUP to get people out of the water and onto dry land, “Most people were in shock, they were panicking,” he said. “There was one man who could not walk … and there was one woman whose face was bleeding,” he told Australia’s News Limited. A sketchy airline that has a history of crashing, luckily there no casualties.
