He ended up at the bottom of the pool and his family wasn’t able to pull him out.

    That comment is not funny. That young man has family and friends who miss him.

    What are up with all these drownings lately? So Sad.

  3. Uneducated says:

    Your ignorance shows in your poor grammar. Back to your $3/hour job now; cleaning toilets.

    1. Fred Garvin says:

      I dont know, the cleaners in our building make a heck of a lot more than that. Its comparable to the people working there for the company. For that matter, are there any 3/hour jobs?

    Too much booze, just guessing.

    1. Leslie says:

      Actually no, medical condition that reacted in the water.

  5. Don't drink and dive says:

    Me think the party got carried away and someone or all had way to many.

    1. Leslie says:

      I work there, it was a sad situation. He and his family just drove up that day from Texas… his little brothers were trying to get him out. Man wasnt drinking.

  6. me says:

    He comes all the way to the Land of 10,000 lakes only to drown in a, “see-ment pond.” Irony.
