SOME of the most ridiculous rescues ever:
Mountain rescue teams were deployed to Snowdon after a man found he had mistakenly packed a map of Scotland. The man, who was training for a 3,000ft Welsh peaks challenge, had smashed his electronic mapping device when he discovered his mistake.
In 2007 a rescue operation was called off after the rider of an unmanned jet-ski was found with his friends on the bank of Pegwell Bay River, in Kent. The rescue had to be restarted when the men tried to retrieve the jet-ski by driving their 4x4 into the river.
In Kuwait, two women and a child were airlifted to hospital from an island tourist attraction off-shore because they were suffering from, "psychological trauma". The two women were said to have broken down in tears after their four-year-old cried continuously without reason.
A man got into trouble off the coast of Anglesey after going out in a dinghy to rescue his neighbour's wheelie bin. The bin was the same size as the dinghy, causing the man to lose control of the inflatable.
