He paid the price so you don't have to call names.
That said people need to treat fast cold water like the wild predator it is.
You wouldn't get close to a dangerous animal without the proper equiptment and substantial training.
This is another example of what can happen.
Really need life preservers in cold water, as it saps your strength quick.
Life vests most likely would have saved him.
