I don't mean any disrespect, but am having a hard time wrapping my head around this. If he was holding on to the side of the boat for 5-8 minutes, were there no life jackets on board? No rope? Nothing that could have helped him to keep afloat? It just doesn't make sense.

I was asking myself the same thing. My thought was he must have been hurt or something. I also heard he had clothes and boots on which made it difficult to stay afloat. How terribly sad. My condolences to all his friends and family.

This mornings story states that once he fell, he never came back up. Lacerations on his head are consistent with the theory that he hit his head when he fell in. This makes more sense.

The child who was in the boat - my daughter knows her from school, says she's a sweet girl. So sad for the whole family, but special prayers for her, as this will likely haunt her, poor thing.

From the News-Sun this morning. If you are asking what their source is, I would have no clue.
