VIDEO: Warning Over Reservoir Stunts
6:02am 28th March 2014
It is feared videos of people bodyboarding over a dam at a Cornish reservoir could encourage copycats.
A charity is worried conditions at sites like Porth can change quickly - because of the weather.
A series of clips have been posted online at YouTube.
In one a man leaps on a bodyboard and slides down a slope, managing to stop before a concrete wall.
In another two friends dispense with the board altogether and slide down.
Although nobody was hurt, safety experts are concerned it is encouraging other people to try it.
They regularly remind people not to swim in reservoirs - warning of hidden dangers lurking beneath.
David Walker is from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. He told Pirate FM: "The critical thing really is the risk of copycats - people who look at that video and think the site looks quite benign and quite safe may come back another day and get caught out. There could be hidden debris and other things they could get caught into.
"There wasn't a huge amount of things where the person could get hurt - but if you have rainfall, like we've had recently, or more water going over the top then the flows, the water currents, could become quite dangerous."6:02am 28th March 2014
