Send in Michael Phelps with his "Bong Re-breather". He'll find them (or he'll imagine he did).

Tragic indeed. Condolences to the families of those who apparently did not survive. At least one family received miraculous news. Wish the others could have.

Well at least this story has a happy ending. I mean, what were they doing in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico hosting dog fights?

A 21' boat single engine in the middle of the gulf with 4 200lb. guys on board is a recipe for disaster from the start HORRIBLE ending but someone should have known better
