Chile's president: I won't give up risky sports
SANTIAGO, Chile – Chile's president says he's not about to change his fun-loving ways just because some think he should play it safe.
Sebastian Pinera says he has no intention of giving up his passion for adventure sports such as skydiving, scuba diving, mountain climbing and river rafting.
He promises to be responsible about it, but says "one can't change his way of being."
The billionaire president has been criticized for making an emergency helicopter landing while running low on fuel on his way to a family getaway. The incident is under investigation by aviation authorities.
Pinera took time out Tuesday from his summer vacation to ask that "critics not worry so much about what the president does" in his leisure time.
