Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The survival odds of two men missing in the Gulf of Mexico for two days have dwindled enough that authorities have switched from a rescue to recovery operation.

we know david very well and he always made sure that his family and friends came first and for everyone he is a fighter and we hope for the best
Thank you for your comforting comment. My brother is Eugene Trzasko, age 39. I was told the whole story from the 66 year old survivor. I miss him terribly and hope he will be found alive; unfortunately, after reading the comments posted, it doesn't seem likely he would be able to fight the current even though he was a very strong man and swimmer.

Let me tell you something my friend, many a 70 year old dude is made of harder leather than the young. Swimming isn't for the faint of heart and the sea is unforgiving. My deepest regrets for the missing men.
Thank you for your comforting comment. My brother is Eugene Trzasko, age 39. He was a very strong man and strong swimmer, it was his lack of knowledge on how to survive that was against him.

Weather or not you believe what they did was stupid, or from comments I have read before about them being just trailor park trash, they all have families that love them regardless of their decisions. I am David's cousin and he had been a part of my life ever since i was born, and i remember going to his wedding and watching his first little girl grow up, I have yet to meet his second daughter, who unfortunately will never get to know her dad. No it was not smart to fit four men on a fifteen foot boat, no it was not smart to swim off from the ship, but what I know about David and his friends and what you know are two different things. Believe me he had reason for swimming off from the vessel. He went out to a job to paint and decided to have a little bit of fun and he didnt make it back. But he will be missed to the greatest extent. His entire family will miss him especially his wife and children. You can say mean things, you can say they were stupid, but if it would have been you or your family i'd sure like to see you say the same things then.

I am Eugene Trzasko's sister - only one, it was just he and I. I think it is rotten that people judge a person by their bank account and not by their heart. My brother will be missed very much. His two children will never see their father again. How heartless people can be.

My brother was not educated on how to survive a boating accident in the ocean. He was a very strong man and swimmer, I pray he is found.

Me myself and I wrote:
I am related to the one that is missing ...... and we never know what we will do in that position..... please stop judging and hoping as you never know what you might do when you are actually in the position.
Alyssa?

I agree with you, It is easy to say what we "would do" in a situation, but when it arises and catches us off guard, we find we don't do as we THINK we would.

It's really disturbing to read such unkind words about my cousin, Geno. Geno had a horrible life as a young child and suffered abuse and abandonment at a young age, with his mother walking out on him as a little, little boy (5?) and his father putting him in an orphanage. He had more pain in his young life than most people will see in a lifetime so it's really sad that it would continue afer his death too. Shame on those who post terrible words about those they don't know. If you have any decency, you would post an apology to his sister, Dawn, who has had more than her share of heartache and needs no more. Perhaps she would find comfort in words of kindness and compassion.

I am the daughter of geno, and I am very disapointed by some of the comments that where posted on here. I never really knew my father, but i loved him very much. I heard great things about him, then i heard things that where not so great about him. Just because people do bad things does not mean that they are a bad person. My father has not been found, alot of people say that there is no chance of him being alive but i wont give up searching untill i have an answer. there is a POSSIBILITY that he is alive. No one knows, I am hoping he is! i have faith. I know this is completly crazy but if you know anything about my father please contact me, I can not give out my number on here but you can either email me at sxyblonde9115@aim.com or visit my website at www.myspace.com/sxybioch

When I was younger , my buddies and I would sneak on the Boca Beach Club grounds , and then go to the north jetty of Boca Inlet to fish for snook . One night a huge shark , probably a bull shark , swam right up to where we were fishing . Another time a large hammerhead swam between me and shore as I was surfing off of red rock . I've also watched blacktips swim after mullet in the swells as we paddled out .
My point being ....
Most of the time , a shark will only bite in cases of mistaken identity . You respect them , but dont fear them. Remember I said most of the time .
i am his daughter, you live in florida?
