This is a bad decision. I hope he at least helps himself to a good meal before going back.

A South Korean Navy patrol boat rescued a stranded North Korean rowboat and towed it to safety in the Yellow Sea Monday morning, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
In stormy and foggy seas, the rowboat crossed the western sea border and drifted 14.8 kilometers (9.2 miles) southwest of Yeonpyeong Island, according to the agency.

The authorities returned it to the North at the boater’s request, it said. “The North Korean resident on the boat expressed his wish to return to the North. We will do so after consulting with their relevant authorities,” a joint chiefs official said.
