Staying afloat with recycled old plastic bottles
Old plastic bottles can be recycled and used in many ways. People only need to put on their thinking caps to put these old empty bottles to good use.
Mobber Ch’ng Lian See caught this picture near Mar Vista Resort in Batu Ferringhi, Penang, recently when he saw what this swimmer did.
But lifeguard Henry Cheng said the man was risking his life.
"Tying old plastic bottles is not the way to go. He should have gotten proper gear to go into the water if he didn't know how to swim. It may be an innovative way to stay afloat, but is he aware of the hidden dangers?
