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.
