ABC news has reported this as a drowning R”L based on eyewitnesses at the scene.

First thing we must do is make sure everyone wears a life vest when riding in a boat.

I think there has to be a serious discussion about safety outdoors…

Not just about life jackets

Not just about life jackets

There’s been a lot of accidents where people have fallen off rocks and been badly injured or have died. Please be aware that proper footwear is so important. Pine needles, leaves, Moss, rocks etc can be notoriously slippery. If you’re wearing regular leather soles shoes instead of proper hiking shoes, you are putting yourself in an unsafe situation, not to mention possibly putting your rescuers in danger. Be safe and teach your children (girls as well as boys) how to stay safe.

So true about life vests

So true about life vests

Even the strongest swimmer can rapidly have ‘street clothes ‘ become waterlogged, heavy, difficult to move in and quickly pull the person under. No one should be in a boat without a life jacket, especially children. Such a horrific accident.

Had we not finished reading, less than 24 hours before this incident:
Venishmartem me’od l’nafshoseichem?

As a certified lifeguard, I would not go into a boat without wearing a lifejacket.

Some adults think that since there on a boat everything is safe and that life vests are for kids. Adults at times may need to jump in to save a kid. No boating company should allow people on boats with new life jackets.
