Always Have Beer In Case Of Emergencies

Mates Jackson Perry and Noah Palmer of Mandurah, Western Australia, planned a leisurely float offshore, drinking beer on a blowup air mattress on Feb. 27, but they wound up stranded in the Indian Ocean for nearly three hours after the wind blew them out to sea. “We couldn’t paddle against the wind, and we just kept going further and further out,” Perry told 7News, but they did manage to call a friend, who reached them on his jet ski just before their cellphones died. “We were kind of getting worried at that point,” Perry said, but the beers helped with the anxiety.
