Good for Guinness

Adult Skier   (Public Domain)
After strapping their 6-month, 20-pound baby onto a pair of water skis and dragging her 686 feet across a Florida lake, some overly proud parents then contacted the Guinness World
Record folks.

Fortunately for vulnerable young pawns in such parental games, Guinness refuses to “record anything involving individuals under age 16.”

While being pulled along “at a speed of 7 miles per hour, this infant skier began to panic.  “As she glided farther away from the shore,” the tiny tot “grimaced and let out a few cries.”

After "she and the skis sank in the water," her father jumped in to save her.  His only regret?  “If I would have known she was going much longer, we would have more people lined up.”

To help...  or simply to gawk?
