    We need to educate people about safe habits on the water. I also am aware that he may have had a medical emergency on the water. Thoughts and prayers to this persons family.

    what a horrible way to go. was in the bahamas this spring and went into the ocean to snorkle when i realized my vest was deflated and my snorkel popped off. I immediately calmed myself, laid back and inflated my vest, by then a bahamian kid retrieved my snorkle from the bottom. I clipped it and on my way. ... BE CALM ... I coulda easily drowned.
