Baby Rescued at Sea

The Turkish Coast Guard rescued a 10-month-old baby who floated out from a beach near Küçükkuyu, in Çanakkale, Turkey’s northwest province. into the open ocean towards Greece, after her sunbathing parents let her play alone. Her family forgot they left her in the water.

I wonder if they would be that lucky if the crib would be a mono...

Baby Rescued at Sea

That brings up the question of what is the best anchor for a crib. And I suppose there are people who would argue for the right to keep guns on board the crib.
