"There were no lifeguards in the area and it is not known if Bhola could swim"

Based upon that statement alone, it's safe to say he wasn't very bright and he couldn't swim.

Thankfully Topix has a few posters, like yourself, who are willing to take time out of their fun filled day in order to apprise us of the obvious.

You definitely deserve more credit than you're worth.

Perhaps the inability to swim, and doing so without a lifeguard on duty may have contributed to his death.

did any of you take into consideration that he was a person. i knew rahul and he was probably the nicest person i know. he could prob swim, but its not easy when youre very deep in the ocean when waves are 5 feet high. it was probably the worst feeling when he had to give up or possibly got knocked out by something else... rip rahul, heaven got an angel.

Possible... A floating branch could have hit him in the head... Did they do any DnA on any wood particles located in the vicinity of the accident ??

Why would someone who could even 'prob swim' go out that deep with 5-foot waves and no lifeguard on duty? Was he retarded?

Well, so far Ive stated he wasnt very bright and asked how dumb he was. Shall I continue with the list? Why not?
Taking into consideration all the surrounding circumstances, he was also: clueless, stupid, uninformed, moronic, idiotic, careless, unapprised, reckless, imprudent, unwise and improvident.
Howd I do?
Care to give it a whirl? Its really fun.

You are about as much fun as a wind-up PeeWee Herman doll with a broken zipper.

Whatever floats your boat. I prefer to call a spade a spade, dead or alive.

Let's make this simple... OK ! 1,2,3... Wave on a beach don't all of the sudden pop up... If this man did'nt know how to swin, he did footsie tip toe into the water as would Nassau County executive Tom Suozzi... Therefore it is more than likely he was careless or high on some form of mother nature... You don't mix those 2 mother natures together ...

Mr. Sanchez instinctively understands the surest way to attract female attention.

By showing off his intellectual prowess and using his sense of humor to ridicule dead competitors.
