Trey was a really good friend of mine that I've known since I was a toddler. If a person yells for help in the middle of an ocean or anywhere, don't take it as a joke. It's not a joking matter. I would've jumped in and saved him just like his friend Jeff did. I would not have stood around like a bump on a log just to watch. Jeff I'm really glad you were there with Trey, because you were the only one who tried to save his life unlike the others. Robbin I feel your pain. You and your family and all Trey's friends, I pray for ya'll. I will have you guys forever in my heart. Trey was a wonderful person with a big heart.

Trey's drowning came as a shock to everyone. I don't understand how a perfectly healthy, strong 16 year old drowns the way he did. Something just didn't seem right and it still doesn't. I wasn't as close to Trey's family as some of you were but my heart goes out to all of Trey's family and friends. Accident??? Yeah. Could something more have been done to save him??? I think so.

To: please tell me, I want to remain anonymous I will set up an E-mail address and shoot you an E-mail. Just ignor the people who are writting negative comments. Frankly these people could not save themselves from anything. Everybody Just wants to blame somebody else. They could not stand in my shoes for 3 seconds before tapping out. And know this Highly trained Professionals were treating Trey, Professional Firefighters, ER Nurses, ER Doctors, EMS, and Professional Police Officers. Fuck these people who say he could have been saved, HE DID NOT HAVE A PULSE COMING OUT OF THE WATER, chances for resusitation are 1 in 9 with no pulse, they could'nt have done any better. I will go to their job and stand over their shoulder and be a (General AFTER THE WAR) I'm sure they could not help a hungry dog.

To Trey's mother, If you have not gotten a copy of the autopsy report, do so. http://www.ehow.com/how_4868287_autopsy-repor... That tells you how to get one.

Speak to the Chatham Co Medical Examiner:
Chatham County Coroner's Office
602 67th Street
Savannah, Georgia 31405

The next of kin can get a copy of the report but you may need proof he was your son. Once you get a copy of the report, read it carefully. If you have questions you can take it to your family physician (a copy, I'd keep the original one you are given if I were you). If there is anything suspicious take it up with the police.

I can't imagine how "No Name in Savannah" could say he/she was there and doing CPR, tell you to read the report and state things like "A fractured Vertebrate no water in the lungs???" and not have evidence to back that up. If this person was there doing CPR they could not have known there was a fractured vertebrate nor could they know there was no water in the lungs. If they were from the medical examiners office and they didn't offer you information on how to get the report...shame on them.

The actual report should shed some light on what happened to your son. I'm so sorry you've not gotten any sort of answers. You're in my prayers.
