i spent my youth on the delaware river. swimming, tubing, etc. the thing about the delaware is the current. it happens all the time, people get in accidents, or capsize, and they panic, and try to swim AGAINST the current. what they should do is swim with the current gradually swimming towards shore. always tragic to hear of a drowning. sympathies.

Stupid or not stupid this mother lost her son! Show alittle sympothy!!! This child was very well liked by all and its a shame you can't keep your negative comments to yourself! Regarless to what time of the day it was, this boy lost his life. Would it have made you feel better if it was at 1 or 2pm??? Now keep your comments to yourself if it doessn't involve saying your sorry!!!!!!!!!

No life vest, no common sense, boating in ther middle of the night, says it all. I tried, but couldn't find any compassion, for somebody, doing something this stupid. I'm looking on the bright side, he will not try it again.

Will we find alcohol involvement in either of the two situations? My guess is sadly, yes. Condolences to the families.

Agree. Again we have a 17 year old child driving. High school graduation season is around the corner. How many deaths of these children will be in the paper?? The driving age should be raised to 18 & a license awarded upon completion of an approved driver ed course. But then again we have all kinds of excuses not to. So sad!
