A bill for his rescue? Seriously? Next time you take a kayak out, loose your paddle and get rescued by the coast guard, will you want to pay for the rescue? This is why we live in America, this is why we pay taxes. Does this young sport goer pay taxes? If so, he already prepaid for his rescue. Come on.
