Two French swimmers tried to break the quarantine rules dressing in a hilarious disguise – but the police caught them
Two French men in their 50s decided to turn into buoys for a day and take a dip in the Mediterranean sea amid coronavirus lockdown in France.
In breach of lockdown rules, the men came up with an ingenious plan to escape the quarantine lockdown. They dressed up as buoys and slipped into the sea at Almanarre Beach in Hyères, France.
