...Even the comment that beach is populated is debatable...
These days just about everything you see in the news is debatable. You were right earlier that the people should know the real rules in order to feel safe but the news media feeds on ignorance and panic. It cultivates them actually. davidb hit the nail on the head. The reporting was malicious and designed to invoke fear.

Yes it was and the witness interviews were no doubt screened and/or edited to support that. "Oh my, we we're terrified!"

If I witnessed something like that I'd be singing praises for how cool it was and that the pilot(s) were being cautions and safe. You can bet my comments would NEVER be aired. Doesn't fit the narrative.
