Full story: one-legged man throws himself off the casino and drowns. When the casino's rescue boat goes out to retrieve the body, it runs out of gas and begins sinking. Another rescue boat is dispatched to aid the original, sinking rescue boat and the man's body is retrieved. No one saw him go over the rails, despite all the security cameras. He left a suicide note in the wheelchair. He was in the water for almost an hour before anyone noticed. He had been depressed and suicidal.

How does a one legged man throw himself over the rail which is pretty high?

FYI - the boat regularly practices body retrieval exercises - they used to have a dummy body they would throw into the river & then practice "rescuing" him. I worked there about 9 1/2 years ago - I hope they are better now than they were then!

Found this sorry. Yeah. My bf is the one that pulled him out. Worker for Harrahs. Sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do. By the time they woulda called someone, the body couldve floated away further and then it would've been harder to retrieve.
