In Nice (Alpes-Maritimes), at the end of the Promenade des Anglais, the prohibition to dive from a rocky promontory is clearly displayed. But a man decided to override. "I'm used to jumping here, but I'm careful, I know the corner, we like the risk"he explains. He bypasses the gate to access the rock and jump into the water, even putting his life in danger. In 2018, there are thirty wounded, sometimes under the eyes of tourists.
In the same place, a young Nice struck the rocks on the weekend of July 7th. He was evacuated in serious condition. Since the beginning of the summer, the police and the gendarmerie multiply the patrols. But that does not solve the problem. The only way to punish swimmers for the authorities is to pay a fine of 22 €.
