But, it might discourage the next person from making the cell phone call.

...or at least think about it first before calling and maybe have a backup plan to self-rescue if you do stupid sh##. Sounds like an easy rescue...this time.

By that logic society should deny access to ambulances and emergency room services for smokers, motorcycle riders, drinks more than two alcohol containing drinks in a day, people that eat donuts or bacon, anyone that buys fireworks, etc.

If we did all that, we would only need maybe 1/3 as many hospitals...

I believe this is the metric that is being applied by the "bell 'em" club

Never mind the concept that laws cannot be passed after the fact based on one internet troll's unfounded opinion.  embarassedlaugh.gif

If any laws need to be passed so that people can be "sent a bill", it should be for car drivers that cause accidents that tie up traffic for thousands of people.  Every person affected should be able to get compensation from the morons involved. That would address a problem a million times larger than base jumpers ending up in trees. Did I say "million"? I meant billion.  hmmm.gif
