Yeah, this idiot along with a friend of his jumped off the mill street bridge. Good swimmer or not, there's no way you do something that stupid and expect to live.

You live and die by the choices you make...

Bubba, I don't recall seeing you there? As a matter of fact I know you weren't there; so since your elephant mouth overloaded your hummingbird ass I'll set the record straight.

First of all there is no Mill Street bridge over the Guadalupe River. The bridge that crosses near the site of the drownings is the Faust Street Bridge. Second, the victims did not jump from the Faust Street Bridge. They jumped from the railroad bridge that crosses upstream from the Faust Street Bridge. And their drownings had nothing to do with the jump as people there saw them swimming and playing after they had jumped. Both victims were seen going over the low head dam between the two bridges and both were seen caught in the boil below the dam.

Now I would not be the one to judge the intelligence of the decisions made by those two men on that day. Yes the river was running a few thousand CFS over normal because of a flood and yes it looked like chocolate milk. And no I would not have been swimming in it myself but you, Bubba, did not know either men, you weren't there, and you obviously have no facts. So next time before you open your mouth think about what you are saying. You are entitled to your opinion, but you are also entitled to keep your opinion to yourself. Moron!
