Kitesurfer Thrown Into A Building By Tropical Storm Fay



Tropical Storm Fay is battering Florida as we speak, sending residents fleeing the storm’s path. As always during these storms though, there will always be a few dumbasses who stay behind to go surfing and kite boarding, like this guy in Fort Lauderdale.

Yes, that’s a person, and yes, that’s him being flung into the side of a building as local news crews watch. The kiteboarder, 26-year-old Kevin Kearney, is in critical condition after the incident. A Darwin Award is pending.

Sure, these are fairly dangerous sports during any circumstances, but it takes a special level of intelligence to attempt to float in the air during a storm with 65 mph winds, which is near hurricane strength.
