A dad managed to put out a fire on the world’s longest pleasure pier by peeing on it. Thomas Watson, 22, has been lauded for his actions after he prevented a fire breaking out on Southend Pier in Essex, England.
Thomas Harold Watson took matters into his own hands and peed on the fire before it caused major damage. Thomas had taken a trip to the pier with his girlfriend and their 15-month-old daughter when he spotted smoke on the wooden boards. Thomas feared the blaze expand as it was a very hot day and the wood was very dry. He unzipped his pants and peed on the flames.
The man said, ‘The wind was really strong so I tried to pee while standing up, but that failed so I got down on my knees. “I needed the toilet anyway so thought that this would just kill two birds with one stone.” Southend Pier is the longest pleasure pier in the world.
