Are you kidding me!? Could you be any more insensitive!? The man has lost his son and feels bad enough without a creep like you making such a rude remark!!! Do you honestly think he would put his life before his son Billy's life!? Honestly! Some people just have no scrupples at all!? It took the Cumberland rescue team over 4 hours to recover the body with all the equipment they needed. How did you expect Mr. King to be able to rescue Billy all by himself!?!?
