Man drowns during Sacramento fishing trip
Since: Mar 13

An avg. of 11 people drown in Sacramento rivers every year, and u still have people in boats w no life jackets. So sad this guy is dead, but when are people going to wake up and realize how unbelievably dangerous it is, to be in the middle of a river w no life jacket.
On avg. about 90% of these victims are male, which tells me many men think it's not macho to be seen w a life jacket. U know what else isn't macho? Dying because you're too cool to be seen w a life jacket on.
Unfortunately this will be, just the first of many, preventable drownings the Sac area will see this season.

i agree with you on that! Put a life jacket on! it's better to "look" ridiculous than to lose your life. i was there when it happened yesterday but didnt see any person. we just saw the fire trucks and the police walking along the beach on the opposite side of the river we were at...that is soo sad. i stay on the shore! i dont go past where i can touch the ground under me
