An angry Venice mayor says two surfers who sped down the Grand Canal on motorized boards have been identified but did not specify what punishment they faced.
Venice outrage as motor-powered surfers hit the Grand Canal
Two surfers who sped down Venice’s Grand Canal on motorised boards have been identified and the boards confiscated, the city’s mayor said.
Mayor Luigi Brugnaro posted a video on social media showing two surfers heading down the waterway as the sun rose in the distance.
The mayor asked for help in apprehending what he called “two overbearing imbeciles who are making a mockery of the city”, and promised dinner for anyone who identified them.
In a later post, he said their boards had been confiscated and that the two would soon be apprehended.
