Storm Desmond has been battering the UK and Ireland this past weekend, leaving floods and huge damage in its wake. So common sense would probably say stay indoors. That doesn’t apply to these two guys.

Taking a massive gamble with their lives, two young lads in Galway, Ireland, decided conditions were perfect for an adrenaline fueled dip into the ocean.

Climbing to the top a pier that is visibly being battered by wind and rain, one of the boys backflips into the sea, while his mate pencil dives into the waters.

STORM DESMONDBy posting this video of Storm Desmond in Salthill, Galway I wish to highlight the absolute madness and stupidity of what these youngsters are doing. I do not know if they are strong swimmers or not, that is not the case, if any one of them got into difficulties there was no one there to do anything for them. The voluntary and rescue services are kept busy enough without having to worry about this type of stupid behaviour. Please God, everyone will have a happy Christmas, perhaps it could have been very different. I would like to make it very clear that I or anyone else do not condone or see any "macho" side to this incident. In a couple of hours this video clip has received 168,000 views across the globe and everyone is of the same opinion "fools", "eejits", "morons" and worse. Count your blessings and do not, ever, repeat this type of "stunt". Cathal Devlin

Some people have actually tried to argue in favour of the lads actions, claiming that they are safe.

Whilst I can see the logic in that thought I can’t say I agree with it.

Just standing at the top of that platform could have ended in tragedy, the high-speed wind has already claimed a victim in the UK as a 90-year-old man was blown into a bus in London.

They are a lucky pair to be able to tell their idiotic tale.
