You can’t fix stupid. That’s a lesson these beachgoers learned the hard way on a trip to Maho Beach in St. Maarten. A beach famous for its incredibly close proximity to an airport runway, it offers the potential for an incredible perspective of landing planes. It also offers a pretty dangerous area of the beach if anyone is dumb enough to setup right behind the area the planes takeoff at — which they are.

Beachgoers can be seen in the clip as they and their belongings get flung into the ocean as the jet takes off. We’d say they’ll probably never do that again but it sounds like a bet we’d lose.
