Human Hamster Rescued At Sea Wants His Bubble Back
Despite multiple warnings from the U.S. Coast Guard, one thrill seeker attempted to walk on water in a bubble from Miami to Bermuda. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
A human hamster's rescue at sea in a bubble wheel is costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.
Reza Baluchi built a strange vehicle, like a hamster wheel, so he could walk on water all the way from Miami to Bermuda. That's over 1,000 miles.
The Coast Guard tried to tell the human hamster he was making a huge mistake, saying, “If you run into trouble there's no guarantee that we are going to be able to get to you in time or even find you.”
Baluchi said, “Okay. I am continuing to go.”
He refused to stop.
The Coast Guard said, “You understand by your refusal to terminate this voyage, you're putting yourself in grave danger on the high seas?”
“Yes,” replied Baluchi.
Finally, after three more grueling days at sea, Beluchi had enough and sent two distress calls.
In video released by the Coast Guard, Baluchi can be seen being plucked to safety by a helicopter. The cost of the rescue was over $30,000.
These giant bubbles have gotten other thrill seekers into trouble in the past.
Two men climbed inside something they call a Zorb and rode it down a ski slope in Russia. Before long, things go horribly wrong. The Zorb veered off course, hit jagged rocks, and nothing could stop it rolling over a precipice. One rider was killed, the other injured.
At least Baluchi got out alive.
