Heard the story on the radio this morning, the deceased wasn't wearing a vest and didn't know how to swim. But sure!!!! We at (insert insurance company name here) will write a policy for you no problem....

So that's 2 for this weekend, let's see how many more die a stupid death around here by Labor Day.

Default Re: If you can't swim....

We have had 3 drownings at our local beach since Memorial day.

It makes me sick to see kids swimming 50-100' out into the river where it is 18' deep. No jackets, no apparent supervision.

You can tell that they are not good swimmers either.

My kids do not go into or onto the water without life jackets.
