Should people who put themselves in danger be rescued?
A recent story in the press reminded me of an article on the Network: https://learn-english.online/2014/11/22/travelarticle-walking-essentials/
Well, four tourists obviously hadn't read it.
Four (unnamed) tourists called 999 after getting lost on Ben Nevis, Britain's Highest mountain, in blizzard conditions, with winds of up to 100mph and windchill causing temperatures of -20C. Lochaber Mountain Rescue team, who rescued them, at risk of their own lives, said on their Facebook page that they had no ice axes, crampons and apparently no map, and were not dressed for winter mountaineering, three of them were only wearing trainers.

Yes, but they should be billed for the rescue.
