I don't understand why viewers looked at your post and judged it with a lemon, and clueless, and nuts. You're right, there IS a drowning every other week or so, and its usually a canoeist. Why would a canoeist just decide to jump in and swim in a weedy lake? Very creepy description by the man seeing him standing on the bottom, not moving. This one is very strange.
