I guess if the guy had drowned, there would have been a dozen comments expressing opinions about what went wrong. But, something went right and nobody says anything. I personally want to commend all the young men who played a part in saving a life, here. I hope you are around if I ever get into trouble.

I AGREE WITH YOU 100%
