At least seven people have died and 1,200 have needed rescuing due to the flooding in and around Houston, Texas, this week, but that didn’t stop these kids from testing the waters.
KTRK posted video of a group of youngsters in bathing suits gathered around a drain. They decided to tie a rope to an inner tube and take turns riding it.
"We know school's out today, but kids, this is really a BAD idea," the station's Facebook post reads.
The reaction on social media was basically, "Where are the parents?"
"This is the kind of nonsense that can quickly turn you into a fatality statistic!" KTRK meteorologist Travis Herzog wrote on Facebook. "Parents, do not let your children underestimate the deadly power of moving water! One foot of water moving at just 10 mph exerts the same force as a 280 mph wind! Let that sink in."
