Will keep the victim's family in my prayers during this difficult time. I hope that this was just a tragic accident and not the result of someone acting stupid.

Oh no, that's so sad. Friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I live near the park, and this is awful. Where exactly did this happen? There are a lot of swimming holes at Sam A, and I really didn't think the water was that high...did he get pulled under by a current somewhere?
