BLOW-UP unicorns are fuelling fears of a summer of tragedy during a seaside.
The renouned inflatables can act like sails and brush a gullible out to sea in seconds, a RNLI says.
They have surged in recognition after England’s group and women’s World Cup footballers were graphic rowdiness around on them.
But they are approaching to lead to a swell in puncture call-outs following a record series final year.
The RNLI’s Ross Macleod warned it “could simply finish in tragedy”.
He added: “People don’t conclude these simply aren’t designed for a sea.
“They’re fundamentally large sails that can drive we miles out to sea in seconds.”
The organization was concerned in 479 sea rescues involving inflatables final year — scarcely double a year before.
The inflatables cost as small as a fiver and frequency come with reserve warnings.
They should be used only in swimming pools, a RNLI says.
Rik Bartholomew, whose daughter Hayley, five, was swept out to sea on a swan, called them deathtraps.
She was discovered though Rik, 37, said: “I severely suspicion I’d never see the daughter alive again.”
