“Weighing the risk” rebuttal

Barb McKay, I cannot accept the premise of your article entitled “Weighing the risk”.


No one should accept your assertion the drowning victims at Station Beach entered the water considering they may be making a life and death decision. More likely these people entered the water (along with hundreds of others) wanting to have fun and splash in the waves.


My brother is perhaps an exception as he drowned while rescuing his daughter and her friend. Barb, for you to state that these drowning victims only have themselves to blame because they lack common sense is insulting, incorrect and hurtful to the deceased and their loved ones. I believe a retraction and an apology is in order.


Are you going to the Fall Fair Dance Saturday night?
