Daft dads push kids in buggies across dangerous river

Two fathers have been branded Britain's daftest dads after they were photographed pushing children's buggies across a dangerous river.

Witnesses were left gobsmacked when they saw the gormless pair wading across notorious Blackweir on the river Taff in Cardiff. The kids aren't visible, but you can see a child's leg poking out of one pushchair.

Penarth Coastguard tweeted the picture and added: "Blackweir is a dangerous place to swim, but this is just reckless and dangerous."

They said being swept over Blackweir was like 'being dumped by a barrage of waves with the churning water forcing you down'.

"It only takes ankle deep water to knock you off your feet. It only takes 60 seconds to drown," they said.

"Fast flowing water hides dangers such as rocks, holes, debris and fallen trees trapping the swimmer."

Sergeant Adrian Snook, of South Wales Police, said: "We can understand why people are attracted to the river in this hot weather, but we cannot emphasise enough just how dangerous this can be." .
