I grew up jumping off this light house and as a matter of I just did a few weeks ago. I don't live in the area anymore but if a new current or undertow has developed in that area the people need to know.

No he was not he was a really good kid with his head on his shoulder alot of kids jump off the light house. Yes that is very dangerous alot of people do it. He was not suicidal he was trying to enjoy his self with his friends. There is also a really bad under toe by the light house.
As far as I know the undertow is at the other end of the lighthouse where the gap is between the break walls. Someone should dive down to see if a new current has developed.

Why is it that everytime a kid does something stupid they are always good kids. A kid kills his family "he was a good kid". A kid runs away from home "he was a good kid". A kid jumps off of a lighthouse and dies "he was a good kid". Almost makes me hope my kid grows up bad!

Maybe you should volunteer if you think jumping off the lighthouse is such a great idea.

I probably will throw on some diving gear and check to see. They have signs all over the opposite end to prevent people from swimming the gap where there is a severe undertow.

With a name like ChokingVictim I would imagine you were stupid at least once in your life, oh, maybe twice, you wanted to name yourself that.

My sympathy to this young man's family.
