Any chance of a quote like this ever coming from an NJ summer lifeguard?

From a FL newspaper re. the surf from TS Sandy.

"Fort Lauderdale's Ocean Rescue advised beachgoers to stay out of the ocean, but knows not everyone will heed the warning.

"The expert surfers will be out there so we just tell them to be careful and we're there if they need our help," Chief Breck Ballou said. "We're there to go out and get them.""
