Why are these people not wearing life vests? Everyone who has grown up on Lake Erie knows what she is capable of!!

I don't know why people insist on jumping into lake erie. it is a place of death, this is not the sunny beach of miami people Lake Erie has an undercurrent that will kill you soon as you hit the water no matter how good you can swim, it's deadly always has been and always will be, it is deemed the most dangerous of the great lakes....I understand he was trying to fix his boat, but geez didn't he just see what happened to Emma Nahas!

Poor Greg, he had a phd in animal nutrition, was a very smart guy, accidents happen, He was trying to sell the boat to individuals on the boat when something went wrong he was worried it could harm the boat he was selling so he jumped in quickly to fix it....

Greg was an experienced sailor; I would assume the reason he was not wearing a life vest is because he needed to dive under the boat to get to the rope tangled in the propeller. Wearing a PFD would have made it tough to do that.

This is all lies! What I saw was a man stabbed and then pushed off the boat after they hit him in the head with a bat. The fight was because he wanted the boat back and then he said and quote: " Look man, I've had this boat forever, just give it back, and i'll pay you back all the money" and he went crazy and hit shaw
