While standup paddle-boarding is a trendy sport, it has its own risks. Teachers and students of a Penghu elementary school were stranded in open waters while practicing the sport. Luckily, a captain of a fishing boat happened to be nearby and brought them back to shores.



Notice the red dot there? It should be a small boat.

The captain of a fishing boat was going about his daily occupation when he noticed a red "dot" in the distance.

Shipwreck!

As the Captain steered his vessel closer, the dot turned out to be two students and a teacher, who were sitting on paddle boards helplessly as they were stranded in open waters. One of the students even cried out loud.

It's ok, you can stop crying now. (How are we supposed to get back?) I will help you get back to shore, don't cry and don't be afraid.

Three teachers from Fengkuei Elementary School were originally introducing standup paddle-boarding to seven senior students as part of the marine education program. But strong north wind quickly took hold of their boards, before they knew it, they were stranded in open waters too far away from land. One female student even got blown away and was drifting alone without her companions.

Teacher, please be careful too. Kids, it's ok to take it slow and easy. That's right, hold your hands and take it easy and don't be afraid. Just climb up.

At around 3:30 pm on the 14th, the Penghu Coast Guard Administration was notified that 4 students and teachers were stranded in the Fengkuei sea area and dispatched 2 rescue boats. Luckily, the captain who happened to be nearby pulled the victims out of the water and the incident ended without injuries. The captain said people should not venture too far from the shore without assessing the weather and sea conditions. The school said it will reinforce safety precautions.

發吉隆號漁船船長 呂隆唐:「有沒有看到紅紅的,紅紅的,前面應該是一張小船啦!」

像往常一樣出海工作,不過卻碰到了遠方紅點,船長發現狀況不對勁。

發吉隆號漁船船長 呂隆唐:「有船難,有船難!」

把船繼續往前開,眼前的正是在海面上漂流的一位老師和兩位學生,坐在槳板上孤立無援,一名學生忍不住哭了出來。

發吉隆號漁船船長 呂隆唐 vs. 風櫃國小學生:「小朋友不要哭,不要哭!(那我們要怎麼上去?) 我會幫你們上去,不要哭、不要怕。」

風櫃國小的親海教育課程,14號三位老師帶領七名高年級師生使用SUP立式划槳下水,親近海洋,未料北風過大,師生被吹到外海無力划回,只能受困海上,還有一名女學生獨自被吹散到較遠處。

發吉隆號漁船船長 呂隆唐表示:「自己做老師,也要注意一下,慢慢…小朋友慢慢…沒關係,來,對、對,手拉著,慢、慢、慢、慢,不要怕。來,爬起來。」

澎湖海巡隊14日下午3點半左右接獲報案,得知有4名師生受困風櫃海域,也派出2艘救援艇前往,所幸師生遇到熱心漁船提前救援,結束海上虛驚一日。而船長也提醒若不了解海象,絕對不能離岸邊這麼遠,校方則表示將會加強安全戒護。
