Of course the news isn't going to hunt down the "experts", but Kim Morris made a good point. There is a death every year at that particular lake. Usually it's small children and is in the shallow parts near the shore of the lake. It's sad when you think that a child could have been saved just by someone picking them up. Obviously, don't put yourself in jeopardy to save someone that could potentially drown you as well, but that's just using common sense. I'm deeply sympathetic to anyone affected by this drowning and all the other drownings in the past. Best of thoughts and prayers to you and your respective families.
