i am down here in florida on the other side of the state and i am also from michigan,.. to be honest no one ever thinks about this kind of thing ever happening to them or another family member. but you know as long as i have ben down here,. it seems weird cause people not from here all they think of is having a good time and enjoying the beaches and other activities,.. but if you ask anyone actually from here if they ever go into the water down here they will tell you no. they have all been taught to stay out of the water and to use the public pools or one of their own. i wondered why until i got hit with a jellyfish the 3rd year i was here and realized that it didn't matter where i was or what i was doing that this is a diffrent part of the country that i knew nothing about! if you come hear please be very careful about what you do and where,..it was all over the news today on our local radio stations and what nots. the fact that she wasn't a native didnt surprise anyone,.. and neither did the fact that this kind of very unfortunate thing could have happened,.. these waters are very much unknown and also unpredictable even to the advid fish and game wardens and fishermen. please becareful,...my heart and prayers are with this family,.. from florida we are very sorry this happened to you and your family.

Last year there was a string of fish deaths that would occur in rivers where stergen, or some type of fish, would jump out of the water and kill people while they were on their boats or jet skis, who knows why that stuff happens...very odd.

I feel sorry for this woman because it could happen to any one of us when we are on the water. Every time we wade into the water at the beach we could be eaten alive.

I have seen these animals underwater, so graceful and peaceful. It seems it couldn't be anything but a freak accident. Very sad.

If these fish want war, lets give them a war they won't soon forget.

It is time to send in the military to take on these salty [email protected] and show them who's boss!

Are sting rays sharks or fish, or are fish sharks. Or are sharks a breed of fish? Can you live in the water and not be a fish?

This is obviously a marketing ploy by the boat manufacturers. The boat manufacturers are now saying that the Sting-Rays are in cahoots with the terrorists! When you stop buying boats, the Sting-Rays (and the terrorists) have won!

I think the devil or demons can posses animals, and make them do all sorts of odd things, like jump out of boats and kill people.

Dolphins live in the water but they aren't fish. they are more like dogs than fish.

Turtles live in the water but aren't fish, they belong to the turtle family.

Whales are also more like cows than they are fish.

Hi, you did nothing wrong, don't apologize, your a kind hearted person, and life is about everyone, you, me and them.
None of us are so far removed from each other that we can't relate to each others pain.
Your a strong, kind hearted soul, the fact that you can still be so kind and nice after what you and your son went through is awsome.
