I agree that people should be more concerned with the accident rather than policing everyone else's comments. This was a father, a son, and a husband. His family has lost a major part of their life in the blink of an eye. I have been swimming at High Rock Lake for years. There are undertows in certain areas, there are also a lot of unseen drop-offs if you are in an area that you don't know well. Besides wearing a life preserver, there could be any number of other issues that caused this to happen.
And to the one who posted that life preservers make you look like a "loser"? There are many types of life preservers, not just the bulky orange ones that wrap around your neck. There are a lot of ski vests that do the same thing and a lot of them are a lot more stylish than the wrap-around type.
Lastly, does it really matter how everyone thinks you look?? As long as you are safe, everyone's opinion doesn't mean a thing. You will be safe and they will be the ones in the water risking the chance of being the next ones to drown. Think about it.

My prayers are with this family. It is such a tradegy for everyone connected. Let's everyone try and be extra careful this summer.
